American Bakers' Cafe - Charlestown

Atkins. Paleo. South Beach. The Zone. Cocaine. Mediterrenean. Nutrisystem.  Every day it seems a new diet pops up. LeBron got skinny off that paleo. I have been working on a different plan, however.

The Subs Diet. I eat about 4-7 subs per week, and I have never looked nor felt better. My skin is slowly developing that golden, flaky crust everybody likes, and my insides are probably marbling nicely at this point. While I recognize my blood may have been replaced by hots, I still do worry sometimes about my health, and for this reason, I switch it up real quick. That's why I hit em with that Grilled Chicken Sub to keep the saturated fat low and to represent for the ladies out there.

I couldn't have said it better myself.
What's a panini? This is a pressed Grilled Chicken Sub.

American Bakers Café is located in the Charlestown Navy Yard. Down the cobblestone walkway from the USS Constitution, you will find a number of renovated buildings including graduate schools, condos, hotels, and government offices. Tucked away in one of these buildings, American Bakers Café serves a variety of cakes, pastries, panini, espresso, coffee, and subs. Aside from a number of specialty sandwiches with creative names and fancy ingredients, the subs are priced at a bargain $5.60.

The Grilled Chicken sub includes pieces of marinated grilled chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, provolone and Italian dressing served on a pressed sub roll. It's pressed, but it's not a panini. See our review on Trina's Starlite Lounge to know what I mean. Check the review below to see how this sub rates on the Grilled Chicken Sub Scale.

While I typically think pressing a sub is a cop out--it hides the soft, bland imperfections of an ordinary sub roll or runs the risk of over-crisping a quality roll--it works well for their Grilled Chicken Sub. With the spot of Italian dressing, the chicken tastes juicy and flavorful, and the roll holds up fine. The extras are middle-of-the-mall, but sometimes a sub like this is what a boy wants, what a boy needs at lunch during the week. It may not be the best sub in Boston, but it's a good sub at a good price. At this price point, this is a quality solution for anyone else out there following the Sub Diet trying to get the subs going' up on a Tuesday.
