The most popular, most requested sandwich on the Boston College campus is the New England Classic, available at three dining locations.

“If it’s ever been taken off any menu, there has been an outrage,” says Michael Kann, associate director food and beverage, BC. “Alumni come back just to get this sandwich. It’s iconic. People know it and ask for it.”

What makes it great? It’s the combination of cheese and apple, a real New England thing, Kann says, adding that the sandwich’s one downfall is the high cost of the bread used to make it, but it’s that upgrade that pushes it into sandwich stardom.
