A Sandwich a Day: Sabich at Nish Nush

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

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 can think of Sabich as breakfast falafel: fried eggplant, egg, salad, and yogurt all stuffed into pita. That pita's a big part of what makes the sandwich, and at Nish Nush in Tribeca, it's made daily. It's light and springy, but strong enough to hold all the traditional components of a sabich.

Eggplant and hummus are what give the sandwich ($8) its substance. They're both rich and hearty, stick-to-your-ribs filling, but easy on the salt. For that, there's hard-boiled egg and briny pickles, which along with finely diced Israeli salad lend a nice crunch that helps cut through all the creamy ingredients.
