Flavorful fillings on delectable bread make Così (inexplicably pronounced "cozy") a downtown lunch hot spot. This location, right on the Freedom Trail, makes a delicious refueling stop. Italian flatbread baked fresh all day -- so tasty that it's even good plain -- gets split open and filled with your choice of meat, fish, vegetables, cheese, and spreads. Soups and salads are good, too, and pizzas with flatbread as the crust are tasty, but for me, this place is all about the sandwiches. The more fillings you choose, the more you pay; the total can really climb, so don't go wild if you're on a budget. Tandoori chicken is sensational, as is roast beef with wasabi mayonnaise. For dessert, order s'mores, and a staffer will bring you a contraption that holds an actual fire.
Other branches are at 14 Milk St. (tel. 617/426-7565), near Downtown Crossing, and 133 Federal St. (tel. 617/292-2674), which has patio seating in warm weather.
