A Sandwich a Day: The Breakfast Special at Bark
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.
Devout praise of the breakfast menu at Park Slope's Bark has found its way onto this blog before. That praise still rings true. While a-la-carte prices for Bark's breakfast seem high when compared to their fast-food counterparts, they're reasonable when compared more aptly to those of a typical brunch platter.
Those who can get over the sticker shock of an $8 breakfast sandwich should make a point of trying the breakfast special, a grilled English muffin stuffed with house-made chorizo and slow-cooked egg. The grilled chorizo patty making up 1/3 of the sandwich's weight is mildly seasoned, intensely porky, and naturally sweet. The silky, custard-like disc of egg beneath does more than well by the notion of an upscale Egg McMuffin. A dab of creamy avocado sauce and pickled jalapeños splashed with lime juice add an extra dimension of flavor, showcasing Bark's attention to detail.
It might cost a pretty penny, but this sticker is right—it's just good food.
