The 101 Best Sandwiches in New York

Reply Wed 2 Jun, 2010 07:17 pm
At its most elemental, the sandwich is an efficient delivery system for protein, carbs, and maybe a few vegetables, requiring just two pieces of bread and a pair of hands to consume. But in modern New York, the sandwich has evolved into something else entirely. It’s not just sustenance " it’s baguettes blobbed with sea-urchin roe and smeared with Korean-mustard-oil butter, milk-braised turkey leg on Pullman, oak-smoked salami squished into an onion roll. Joining the city’s classics " the hillock of carved pastrami piled onto twin slices of rye at Katz’s, say, or El Sitio’s venerable Cubano " they make for a particularly rich moment in the city for stuff between two slices of bread. In the accompanying slideshow, we celebrate all that is great about the endlessly evolving New York sandwich including a drool-inducing paean to what happens when lunch becomes dessert. The sandwich, of course, is nothing if not versatile. Plan a month of lunches by viewing our slideshow, then enter our Grub Street Sandwich Sweepstakes for a chance to win fabulous, edible prizes.

The best sandwich in Los Angeles, last I checked (2009), is still the meatball sandwich at the international food place on Lincoln in Santa Monica, near Broadway. When I knew it as a neighborhood place, it was called Bay Cities, and international grocery store with deli. The meatball sandwich was best eaten on one of the ugly benches and tables facing Lincoln Boulevard in the rain, the wind, the smog, the car fumes.
