Sanguiccio is a strange word to English eyes, but if you say it fast enough it sounds like someone with a strong Italian accent saying sandwich.
Owner Genio Ienzi is opening his sandwich shop at 183 Preston Street (the former Muscle Madness location) to cater to the strong take out market. He is supporting other local businesses too: his meats come from Luciano's Fine Foods.
Genio is currently negotiating with a small artisan baker to supply buns -- pannini -- and specialty loaves of bread. When talking to Genio, he gave me a sample of his last slice on hand: it's texture was incredible and light, full of yeast bubbles. He suggests patrons can buy a loaf, slice it, and freeze the pieces in separate freezer bags to be toasted or warmed up one delicious slice at a time.
