It's been a great year for sandwiches in this city. We found new loves in pastrami and patty melts. We celebrated grilled cheese in all its oozy forms. We even hacked a few sandwiches of our own. Here are 30 standout sandwiches we had this year.
'barbarini alimentari' on Serious Eats
The New Amsterdam Market on South Street and Beekman only has four more weeks until it closes for the season, so if you're looking for Southern Manhattan's best mix of savory and sweet bites, local beverage makers, and high-quality ingredients for home cooking, now's the time to go.
The egg here is fluffy and creamy, bolstered just enough by housemade mayo and salty-sweet ham. A great lunch (or breakfast) in the Financial District.
I had my doubts about Barbarini's ability to perfect the balance between the spicy freshness of the arugula, the sweet and savory of the bresaola and Parmesan, and the acidity of the lemon vinaigrette. But the Italian staff here gets it right, serving the chewy but tender meat and cheese on a crusty, crackly roll.
