A Sandwich a Day: Tuna, Egg, and Anchovy at Bklyn Larder
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.
I can count the number of memorable cold tuna sandwiches I've ever had on one hand, but am not at all surprised that Bklyn Larder makes a fabulous one. Their Tuna, Egg, and Anchovy ($8.50) starts with a caper-studded tuna salad, with just-set hard boiled egg slices laid atop. A generous shower of olive oil keeps it from getting too dry, and man, they're not shy with the anchovies. It's all sandwiched neatly by a soft Grandaisy stirato loaf. It's a drippy, indulgent sort of tuna salad, but made so by powerful flavors and lots of olive oil—a way better kind of indulgent, in my book, than sloppy with mayo.
