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't go wrong with anything on the menu at Park Slope's City Sub, an old-school hero shop with a die-hard cult following. Place your order and the speedy counter guys haul out the cold cuts, slicing them paper-thin and piling them on crusty, fresh Italian rolls. But of all the sandwiches, I'm partial to the #20: capocollo, prosciuttini, and pepper jack cheese with oil, vinegar, and hot peppers. Not quite a classic Italian sub, but with the all the layers of heat—the peppery cheese, the spicy peppers—perhaps an even more exciting one.
