A Sandwich a Day: Farmer's Brat at Landbrot
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.
Germanophiles of New York, take note: newcomer Landbrot in the West Village bears many types of traditional breads, pastries, pretzels, sausages and sandwiches, all housemade. On a recent visit, we opted for the Farmer's Brat ($8), a tasty pork and veal specimen with finely ground, well seasoned meat and the satisfying snap of a natural casing. It comes nestled in a chewy, lightly charred white roll, and piled with nicely acidic sauerkraut. Does a brat really qualify as a sandwich? Just barely, but this is one almost-sandwich that we felt compelled to tell you about.
