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.
For those days when the desire for a chicken sandwich is not about that slouched-shoulder acquiescence to health, consider the fried chicken cutlet sandwich ($11.00) at Brooklyn breakfast geniuses Egg.
The crisp-fried cutlet is more of a dinner-plate meal than a sandwich, but hey: you can stuff nearly anything into a hamburger bun these days. Taut, just-shiny-enough breading coats this huge portion of moist Free Bird Farm chicken as it explodes from its sandwich bed on a billowing sheet of lettuce. Once you've worked your way inward, fried chicken meets yes, mayo, but also a supervinegary, full-slice cucumber relish that's spicy and and lends your chicken-fried pleasure that ideal moderating balance. Keep napkins within reach.
