A Sandwich a Day: Eggplant and Smoked Mozzarella at Dominique Ansel 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.

You may not expect much from a roasted vegetable medley sandwich, and rightly so, but damn does this one ($8.50) deliver. You know a sandwich gets it right when the eggplant within has the weighty satisfaction of well cooked meat, and roasted peppers and zucchini act more as condiments for melted smoked mozzarella than watery show-stealers. That mozz is seriously smoky, but in balance with the sandwich's other components, and a smattering of capers lends some necessary brightness. Why can't all vegetarian sandwiches be this good?
