A Sandwich a Day: Smoked Turkey Sandwich at Maysville

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.

Butter lettuce is the only thing on the Smoked Turkey Sandwich ($14) from Maysville chef Kyle Knall leaves as is. There are onions, but he pickles those in his own vinegary, spicy pickling liquid. Boring and bland store-bought mayo is substituted for a homemade aioli. It's fresher tasting, and the garlic provides flavor where otherwise lean turkey can't, which, as you might expect from a two-star restaurant, is smoked in-house. After being smoked whole, turkey breast is sliced paper thin and nestled onto a puffy potato roll. Salty strips of pork belly also succumb to the beauty of barbecue in Maysville's kitchen. It wasn't the crispiest bacon we've ever had, and on a sandwich as soft and delicate as this, sort of just gets in the way. Still, it's not enough to make it any less of a stellar sandwich than the much-loved pulled pork or grilled fish.
