How much do you like the pickle served alongside many sandwiches? Enough to drive an hour and change from Manhattan to get your mouth around one?

Sandwiches in which a giant pickle stands in for the bread or roll has become all the rage at Seven Brothers Gourmet in Oceanside, on the South Shore of Long Island. Anthony Fiorito, the son of one of the deli’s owners, claims that people drive from as far as Albany to try it. He adds that the restaurant’s weekly pickle order has increased by 1,400% since customers started clamoring for the sandwich.
