A Sandwich A Day: 'The Pittsburgh' at Rye House

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Primanti's it's not, but The Pittsburgh ($12) sandwich at Rye House clearly takes its inspiration from that iconic Steel City lunch—tossing french fries and coleslaw right in the sandwich. Here, it's spicy andouille sausage with a caraway-studded slaw and French fries that are, truth be told, a good deal crisper than I've ever had at Primanti's. Altogether satisfying, if not actually the replication of a classic. (And ringing up at triple the price.)
