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.
I could smell the aroma of the chicken cutlet parmigiana sandwich ($9.50) wafting from my bag as I rode the train back to Serious Eats, and my mouth watered. When I unwrapped this still-hot hero, I could tell it would live up to its smell. The sandwich is stuffed with two chicken cutlets, and topped with homemade marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. The chicken is tender and flavorful, and the marinara sauce is both sweet and acidic, cutting through the richness of a large bite of pan-fried chicken. The mozzarella is very thinly sliced but packs a punch, and oozes onto the delicious, tender hero roll. In case that wasn't enough, a thin slice of cheese ends up melted over the top of the sandwich—just to let you know what you're in for. While not cheap, this sandwich is enormously filling and as satisfying as you could imagine.
