A Sandwich a Day: Fried Chicken at Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

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.

East Village newcomer Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter styles itself as a casual Southern café, but its commitment to quality food is a little more serious. The chicken is free-range and organic, vegetables are sourced from Hudson Valley farms, and all condiments are prepared in-house.

The Southern classic fried chicken ($8.50) is served on a soft, lightly toasted bun with a smattering of sweet pickles. The well-seasoned chicken breast was moist and tender, the crust nicely flavored. The best part? It tastes a lot like a fast food fried chicken sandwich—fitting for when that craving strikes—but elevated, all at the same time.
