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.
Serious Eats favorite Alidoro is nothing if not quirky—the tiny Soho storefront displays all manner of bric-a-brac and silly signage (example: "Read the menu, or lady behind the counter will bite"), and on a recent visit one employee behind the small counter was watching the movie "Midnight in Paris"; we had a little chat about it as I waited for my sandwich. That was the Alyssa ($11.25): tender smoked chicken from Nodine's, milky fresh mozzarella, peppery baby arugula and the simplest of dressings—olive oil and balsamic vinegar—all served on a soft white Italian-style roll. We've written about Alidoro's sandwiches before, but we feel like we don't write about them enough; luckily for us, their menu offers up a whopping forty. We'll certainly be back for more.
