A Sandwich a Day: Grilled Cheese from Big Booty Bread Co.

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.

When I asked the nice man behind the counter at Big Booty Bread Co. (great name, right?) what his favorite sandwich is, he immediately responded: "The grilled cheese. With tomato." All right, then; one grilled cheese with mozzarella and tomato ($6.95) coming right up.

It was delicious. Served on your choice of home-baked white or wheat bread (we chose white), the large, hearty sandwich tasted exactly as good as it sounded; high-quality mozzarella and ripe tomatoes on well-toasted, flavorful white bread made for a great bite. And the cheese was well melted, always a potential hurdle for a grilled cheese. Not a fancy sandwich, but definitely hits the comfort food spot.
