Readers' Choice: Favorite Stamford Deli

Help us crown Stamford's best sandwich-maker in this week's Readers' Choice contest.

Each of us has a favorite place to go for a slice of pizza or a burger—and Patch's weekly Readers’ Choice contest will tackle those subjects soon enough.

Your local Patch editors all feel this is going to be a great category to let our readers debate and discuss: What’s your favorite deli—and why?

See the list and poll below for your options.

You have a favorite sandwich? Tell your neighbors why it’s so great by posting a rating on Stamford Patch’s online business directory—just click on the link to your go-to sandwich shop below—and cast your vote in our poll (just once please!) 

The poll part isn't scientific so it's not the sole determinant of a Readers' Choice winner. Our local editor will determine winner based on a point system in which poll results and ratings are considered equally. 

See our rules for more information (attached).

Thanks! Questions? Email me at chandra@patch.com.

Here's your list (don't see your favorite deli here—let us know in the comments and we'll add it!):

@Jim: Poll voting closes at 9 a.m. each Friday for the Stamford Patch Readers' Choice series. That's also the time that we will stop counting comments, ratings and reviews for this contest specifically. (All of those are factored into the winner, as per rules attached as PDF.) Winners are announced at 12 p.m. Friday. Hope that helps!

Fusaro's has the imported cheeses, butchered meat, gelato, fresh bread...we love Fusaro's Market. They are always open (even after 8pm when we're working late). Good luck Fusaro's!

hungrymann March 30, 2012 at 01:45 PM
isnt this a vote for best deli and not best market clearly rinaldis is a deli and fusaros is a market thats why its called RINALDIS DELI and FUSAROS MARKET... and how does someone go up 2000 votes in the matter of minutes?? obviously this contests isnt a true contests since the market is cheating....
NyFood March 30, 2012 at 06:59 PM
If I voted for myself 5000 times I would win something too! I wonder how many "customers" really voted for this contest??? What a hack!!!
