Order This: The Italian

For the folks living directly across the street from bike parking at Barclays, beer-and-sandwich-purveyor Bierkraft won't seem like the closest pre- or post-game spot, but that doesn't mean it's not worth the trip. And if you've come from Jersey, the walk to 5th Avenue from Atlantic Terminal won't seem like a hike at all. Of course, get any human with functioning taste buds inside Bierkraft and whatever exertion the trip required will fall away in the face of gorgeous drafts of craft beer and hearty sandwiches wrapped in sturdy orange butcher's paper (and tied up with twine!). You won't find a better prepared Italian sub for miles, with ingredients this fresh and of such a high quality. You can make build your own, but beginners should choose from the board's options until you've got a grasp on pairing slices of Serrano ham with fig jam.
