A Sandwich A Day: Weekend Debris at Il Bambino
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.
Il Bambino, Astoria's beloved "paninoteca," is often filled with regulars lunching on the popular prosciutto panini with gorgonzola dolce and fig spread, but if you find yourself there for weekend brunch, go for the Weekend Debris ($10). Sliced Italian sausage, soft scrambled eggs, piquillo peppers and pecorino cheese are sandwiched into crusty bread and pressed to the perfection. The kicker? A healthy dose of Il Bambino's house-made chili oil, a slightly sweet and spicy concoction that adds that little something extra.
