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.
The Green Table's grilled cheese ($12) is a grown-up's version of the classic sandwich. Raw milk cheddar from Neighborly Farms is paired with a seasonal fruit chutney, which changes every few weeks (currently it's mango); it's all grilled between two thick slices of Amy's sourdough bread.
Everything about this sandwich is well-balanced. The cheese to bread ratio is perfect. The sourdough soaks up the butter, preventing the grilled cheese from being overly greasy, yet still maintains that rich, grilled bread taste that only a hefty helping of butter can bring. The cheese oozes delectably, and the chutney gives it that sophisticated touch.
Even better than a grilled cheese, though, is a half grilled cheese paired with a cup of soup ($12). This sandwich was made for dipping.
