A Sandwich A Day: Grilled Shrimp Po-Boy at Stand

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.

At Stand, the Grilled Shrimp Po-Boy ($12) sounds as if it's leaning towards the light side of things, but coming from a restaurant famous for its toasted marshmallow milkshake, this is very much not the case. The curled shrimp are placed on a fluffy brioche hamburger bun, soused in a spicy chipotle sauce, and buried under a colorful cabbage slaw. The coleslaw may have been my favorite part of this plump little po-burger: crunchy with white and red cabbage, it also contained sweet strips of julienned apples that made me want to eat it by the forkful. A po' boy this is not, but a tasty sandwich? Absolutely.
