Take some kids raised in our era of new-school artisanal-everything foodie-appeasing sandwiches to Sandwich Hut and blow their minds. You won’t find backyard-grown basil aioli or a house-made sun-dried tomato spread here, just traditional deli sandwiches done really well. Old school: mustard and mayo, cold cuts, cheese in such varieties as “yellow” and “white.” It’s cheap, of course. A $5 lunch special got us a soda, crab chips, and roast beef on rye (for about a dollar more you can get a cup of soup with it—chicken noodle and chili on a recent visit). The result was about perfect: The sandwich was stuffed enough to be a meal—a bite’s a mouthful—but not ridiculous, and the roast beef (sliced to order) was plenty tasty. There’s no seating at Sandwich Hut, a small colorful storefront just off Charles Street, so we munched as we walked, which somehow felt so right. (It also delivers.) At the top of a chalkboard in the Hut for specials and such, find at the top written NO STRUGGLE, NO SUCCESS. Root for it.
