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.

Fruit and cheese are a time-honored combination; if it ain't broke, why fix it? The fig & cheese sandwich ($7) at Beecher's Handmade Cheese is just sweet enough to make itself interesting, but not so sweet you feel like you skipped the main course and went straight to dessert. It's a thin spread of fig jam that meets Beecher's own Flagship cheese, melty like Cheddar but a little nuttier and tangier, along with Just Jack to add a little extra mild creaminess to the whole thing. On crusty oiled-and-pressed bread, it's good for those days when you want a good old grilled cheese that's just a little dressed up.
