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 Prosciutto Sandwich ($9.50) at Ground Support sets itself apart from the usual prosciutto sandwich with a bold smear of strawberry-rhubarb jam from Beth's Farm. There's just enough jam to make you pause over that unexpected suggestion of fruit, and it works quite well. Above go ribbons of thinly cut prosciutto di Parma, a buttery, pungent taleggio slightly oozing out the edges, and fresh basil with baby arugula. Simple enough, but that strawberry-rhubarb jam makes it something a little more exciting.
