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.
To my mind, there is very little that some nice, ripe slices of avocado won't enhance. Case in point: the avocado and zucchini sandwich ($8.70) at Café Panino Mucho Giusto. This sandwich takes a tomato, basil, and mozzarella panino (which, it's worth noting, is another delicious item on the menu) and improves it with some grilled zucchini, buttery avocado, and a nice drizzle of fruity olive oil. But what makes all the panini at this café really remarkable is the homemade ciabatta bread. It's chewy and flavorful and makes the perfect "slipper" for this meatless but filling sandwich.
