Now you may or may not know that I have a slight obsession with paninis. I try to take it easy on the carbs but, when my body calls on a panini ,  nothing, and I mean NOTHING, can get in the way of me getting it! One night, while catching up with a friend in Little Italy NYC, a panini craving emerged.  We didn’t have to scour the city too long before we found Grand Appetito.  These guys at GA went above and beyond to curb my panini – panic.  So much so that the staff and owner were so awesome that they actually created a new panini and named it after BuddingVeg!

So what’s in Grand Appetito “BuddingVeg Panini”?
