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.
Okay, a chicken wrap is usually the last thing I'd order for lunch. But a chicken thigh wrap ($6.25)? At a chicken-focused restaurant? Sounds a little more promising. At Purbird, a several-month-old shop in Park Slope, flame-grilled chicken is all they do, and it's excellent, with super-crisp skin and tons of salt and lemon. And it's pretty good in their wrap, too. Brined before it's grilled, the chicken is moist and juicy, and there's a ton of it, with sauteed cabbage and a little mayo and pickled onion that adds a sharp bite. Stretchy and soft, the whole wheat wrap isn't bad either. Essentially, all you taste is the chicken, and that's fine by us.
