We've all been there: stranded on Route 16 between Route 2 and 93, simmering in motionless traffic, debating whether to just turn onto Mass Ave into Cambridge, snake through Somerville on Broadway, or abandon our vehicle and run away. Now there's a fourth option: Turn into Arlington for a roadside sub or a massive calzone.
Anthony's East Side Deli, on the Arlington-Cambridge line (159 Mass Ave) opens on Monday with a nice-looking roster of subs, pastas, calzones, and salads. Anthony Masci used to own Marias Italian Cold Cuts in Somerville, which was tasty, so we're feeling optimistic. Plus, there's a calzone on the menu that feeds 6 people. Or one! [Facebook, BRT]
