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.
There are no real snacks to be had at Snack. Well, unless you count the Easter colored Jordan Almonds in a little jar by the Splenda—a handful of those while I was waiting for my sandwich, and my appetite was ruined. Almost. One look at the Tuna 1.0 ($9.50), and I was instantly hungry again. "Pretty cross-section," remarked Serious Eater Alaina as we unwrapped the beauty from its foil sheath. "Nice chunks of tuna," said Kenji, as we marveled at the roughly cut salad studded with vlahotiri cheese, cucumbers, artichokes, tomatoes, and portobello mushrooms.
Unfortunately, I stopped marveling after I took a bite. Now don't get me wrong—I love me some tuna, whether it's mashed between rye or rubbed down with spices and grilled. My problem was the vlahotiri, a Greek cheese from the kefalograviera family made with ewe's and goat's milk. Its chalky, salty, feta-like taste (think Pecorino Romano) pervaded the otherwise lovely sandwich, leaving me picking apart my lunch. (Life can be so hard, sometimes.)
