A Sandwich A Day: Crosby Special at Crosby Connection

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 Crosby Special ($7) at Crosby Connection is a very worthy sandwich, although its humble crusts hold no surprises. There's the sturdy but light sesame-studded loaf, the mildly sweet tomato sauce, a generous glob of ricotta, and a few strings of melted mozzarella. The meatballs themselves are tight and resilient, a mixture of beef, bread crumbs, parsley, and egg that border on being dense. It's unlikely I would travel across boroughs to attain this particular meatball sub, but I can rest easy knowing that Nolita is safe and soundly supplied with a solid version of such.
