A Sandwich a Day: B.L.A.T at Friedman's Lunch, NYC

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.

I often feel that a sandwich without cheese is hardly a sandwich at all. Yet the B.L.A.T. ($10) at Friedman's Lunch won me over because what it lacks in cheese, it makes up for in smoky bacon and creamy avocado. In addition, the generous portion of avocado is topped with a thick spread of herbed aioli, throwing all my fears of dryness aside. The tangy sourdough and a layer of crunchy lettuce help the sandwich maintain its balance. Worth noting is that Friedman's is a friend to those with celiac disease, and many of the menu items, including all of the sandwiches, are available gluten-free (add $2.25).
