A Sandwich a Day: Saltie's Clean Slate

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.

They call it the Clean Slate ($8) at Saltie in Williamsburg. And sometimes that's what you need after one too many days of greasy chicken parms and burgers. Warm housemade naan is warmed and smothered with hummus, quinoa, and matchstick-cut pickled beets. To finish, yogurt, a handful of shaved fennel, parsley and toasted sesame seeds. A colorful affair, to say the least! The sandwich is served open-faced, but I prefer to fold and eat—both hands, straight up. So much more satisfying.
