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.
If you can't score a reservation at Peter Luger's but need a cheap, quick fix, head over to the deli section of Brooklyn Fare, Boerum Hill's friendly go-to market. Of the 20 or so sandwiches on the chalkboard menu, the Roast Beef Luger ($5.99 on a roll, $6.99 on the hero) was our favorite. They cut slices off their big slab of roast beef, add a slice of cheddar, bacon, and—this is where the Luger part comes in—smother it with Peter Luger's signature steak sauce. Smother, as in, the paper wrapping it is soaked after a half-hour subway ride back to SE headquarters. It's best to devour this 'wich before soggification sets in.
