Green tuna might not be the most appealing sight. Nobody was rushing to call dibs on this when it first arrived at the office. But it's green for a tasty reason: tarragon pesto. Instead of a gloppy mayo acting as the binder in this tuna salad sandwich, it's a bright, clean-tasting pesto mixed with dijonnaise for some creamy fattiness and a mustard bite.
It's spread on slices of multi-grain, and this is one of those breads that ain't messing around. The hearty, fibrous kind with sunflower seeds and a scattering of grains contained within the toasted bread and around its edges.
Sliced diagonally, these are two filling tuna sandwich halves. They're also rather tuna-y. Despite the pesto, 'naise, and crunchy bits of carrots, celery, and onions mixed in there, the fishiness very much comes forward; for fans of fishy funk, definitely. And since it's a West Village tea parlor, it's also not the cheapest tuna sandwich ($12).
