A Sandwich a Day: Sun-Dried Tomato & Smoked Mozzarella at Silver Moon Bakery
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.
Silver Moon Bakery's soft, slightly sweet semolina bread cradles a more intense version of the tomato-basil-mozzarella combination we know and love. The tomatoes are dried and intensely sweet, the mozzarella is lightly smoked, and the basil is transformed into a pesto that's heavy on the olive oil (which soaks into the bread nicely).
That said, this sandwich ($6) was served to us fridge-cold, which dulled the mozz below the flavor we know it really has. Send it through your toaster oven for best results.
