A Sandwich A Day: Norvegienne at Patisserie d'Ambassades

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.

The Norvegienne ($7.50) at Patisserie d'Ambassades in Harlem is not your whole grain-arugula-pesto type of wrap. It's more of a Monday-night-football type of wrap, or as Carey says, "Satisfying in a hangover-cure way." This Norvegienne contains one sliced all-beef hot dog, one fried egg, a substantial if slightly soggy bundle of fries, and some orange special sauce. Erin offered her personal theory: "Any wrap can be improved by a hot dog and fries," and I couldn't agree more. If Norway is built on these little bundles of instant pleasure, get me to Oslo, stat!
