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.

When it starts snowing in the first full week of November, you need some hunkering down food. To that end, consider the Lamb Shish Kabob ($9.95 in a pita, $12.95 wrapped in laffa bread, pictured) at Murray's Falafel. You'll get well-seasoned lamb that's tender and rosy in the center, a bright salad of cucumber, tomato and cabbage, and a choice of breadstuff that's fresh and pleasantly chewy. The pita version is already a mighty sandwich, but the $3 upgrade ups the meat-to-salad ratio and swaps out the pita for warm, dense, and chewier laffa bread, a little larger than the pita and more manageable to share. However you wrap it, tahini and s'choug, a fresh chili paste enlivened with herbs, should be mandatory inclusions.
