A Sandwich a Day: The Cuban at Milanes

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.

Roast pork—fatty and crispy-edged, if not particularly porky, and plenty well-salted. Sliced ham, griddle-heated along with the pork before it's slapped on the roll. Lots of pickles; a crusty, fresh roll. It's nothing you haven't eaten before, but for $6.50, the Cuban sandwich at Milanes is a tasty, satisfying lunch.
