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.
Surely naming a sandwich the "Veggiest of Them All" ($7.00) is to raise a vegetable lover's expectations, and a meat lover's guard. But Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop managed to make a quite tasty sandwich out of largely raw ingredients. Avocado and Annie's goddess dressing serve as binders for tomatoes, sprouts, cucumber, shredded carrots, roasted red peppers, and onions (phew!). The flavor from the red peppers and the dressing prevent this sandwich from falling into the salad-on-bread category. And speaking of the bread, the seven grain roll was my favorite part of the sandwich—flavorful, substantial enough to carry a heap of vegetables but not hard to bite through. This sandwich was tricky to eat (and I soon resorted to the fork approach), but for the health-conscious it's a huge step up from the Veggie Delite at Subway. You can even get soy turkey if you like! (Yum...?)
