Trina's Starlite Lounge - Inman Square, Somerville, MA

Trina's Starlite (Starbrite!) Lounge, make everything alright. Make me an Italian sub. Make me a delicious beer from a local brewery. You must be my lucky bar, 'cause you make the hunger and thirst so far.  Despite the snow and ice abound, thanks to Trina's for sending some of it to the farm, no one  took a spill like Madonna on the way into Trina's. In fact, the Trina's staff seated the Submarine Savages and the First Lady promptly at one of their lovely leather, candlelit booths.

Italian Sandwich, I love you by the light of the candle. 
The sandwich has everything you would expect in terms of interior ingredients.  Capicola, prosciutto, salami, provolone, tomatoes, lettuce, and even house made hots and pickles.  Everything is piled high into a sub...Wait, toast?  Perfectly buttered and crispy toast.  Is this a panini?  Lets go to Dr. Steven Brule for the ruling:

It's not as though the menu claims to have a sub (it is included under a hot sandwich section), but the hot Italian sandwich is a new review for the crew.  More likely grilled on a flat top than Kathy Mitchell's propane powered Griddleman the heat element leaves the meat in prominent flavor purgatory overwhelming elements like the house made hots and pickles that get our juices flowing.

Like the steak and cheese at its little sister next door Parlor Sports, this is a very good sandwich, albeit unconventional in its preparation.  Neither place should hang its respective hat on said sandwich, and thankfully, neither has to.  Menu items like the Starlite Dog or the Fried Chicken and Buttermilk Waffles along with a heralded industry brunch have brought the Esquire Network and Mr. Bacon Lips himself through the door. In combination with the beer offerings and an abundance of Fernet, Starlite has got it all.
