A Sandwich a Day: #19, Roast Beef and Mozz, at Press 195

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 subtle, milky flavors of fresh mozzarella can often get drowned out in the presence of more pungent bedfellows. Not so in the #19 at Park Slope's Press 195: not even roast beef, tomato, and homemade horseradish sauce ($9.25) can mute the oceans of spongy-melty mozz. It's a sloppy meaty-cheesy mouthful under a crunchy shell of pressed bread, a perfect example of what a few minutes in a sandwich press can contribute.
