The March Hit List, Lunch Edition: La Josie, Big Jones, Johnnie’s Beef, and More


Whether your preferred lunch is handheld or knife-and-forked, sauced and messy or a bit more refined, these spots have mastered the midday meal in every form. You’ll find excellent sandwiches, from Vietnamese banh mi to meaty tortas to standout Italian beef, refined Southern plates, tapas, Roman pizzas, and even drive-in tacos you eat in the car. It’s all here and more in this month’s supersized, lunch-focused Hit List — which, yes, goes to 11 (plus a pop-up!).
