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.

Tuna Sandwich from Stellina [Photograph: Shell Tu]

Located right next door to the Italian restaurant Sorella, and run by the same owners, Stellina has a very different style, with the whimsical, light-hearted atmosphere of an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. I am a big fan of their gelato, and recently discovered their sandwiches as well. The tuna sandwich ($12), highly recommended by the staff, is a good one to order on a hot summer day. The tuna salad filling is quite light, with very finely smashed fresh tuna mixed with lemon juice, and shreds of watercress adding more light flavor to the sandwich. The lemon definitely comes through. Thin slices of hard-boiled egg complement the tuna salad and enhance the creamy texture.
