A Sandwich a Day: Veggie Sandwich (and Ramps!) at Bierkraft
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.
Vegetarians need not miss out on the fun of huge, sloppy sandwiches. A veggie sandwich at Bierkraft in Park Slope (equal parts beer emporium and fantastic lunch stop) layers mozzarella di bufula, cured eggplant, and olives onto a baguette spread with hot pepper relish and a basil and Marcona almond pesto. Right now, you can add roasted ramps to any Bierkraft sandwich—their grassy, oniony flavor brought something special to this one. And somehow, piled high, they weren't even overwhelmed, helped perhaps by the salt of the few olives and the mellow mass of mozzarella. Sandwiches are $10, but 10" long, and come with an apple or a bag of Zapp's potato chips.
