A Sandwich A Day: Tuna Melt at Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

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 components of a good tuna melt are reasonably straightforward: super-buttered and throughly griddled bread, melty cheese, and tuna salad that's creamy and somewhat smooth without being a total mayo bomb. On all counts, the tuna melt from Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop succeeds wildly. An old-school favorite from an old-school lunch counter.
