Il Panino, RIP

It’s too sad for words; Il Panino in Cambridge is closing on Saturday. Apparently the landlord is raising the rent and they could not come to an agreement. I remember my first time there, in high school. I had the signature il panino sub (prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil). It may seem mundane now, but to my 14 year-old palate, it was a burst of flavors and textures never before experienced.

 

During high school, we would go for lunch (and dinner) all the time.

 

R’s first job was down the street, and we would go for lunch (and dinner) all the time.

 

Archit’s first apartment was across the street, and we would go for lunch (and dinner) all the time.

 

We went for one final meal tonight with Archit and Mansi. R and I shared an il panino and a spinach calzone for the last time. I would have cried, but the saltiness of my tears would have thrown off the balance of flavors.

 

I guess I’ll be going to the North End more often, now.
