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.
Almondine's focaccia is a little too rosemary-studded, but soft and oily, it's still an excellent sandwich vehicle. We like it in the guise of a chicken sandwich ($7.25), with thin shavings of roast chicken that could easily be mistaken for turkey, mozzarella, and cheese, roast peppers, and pesto to moisten the whole thing up. The bread-to-filling ratio is a bit biased toward the bread side, but the focaccia is satisfyingly oily enough that I don't really mind.
