A Sandwich a Day: Sausage, Broccoli Rabe, Mushroom and Taleggio Panini at Bocca Lupo

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 sausage, broccoli rabe, mushroom, and taleggio panino at Cobble Hill wine bar Bocca Lupo ($11.00) just might be the perfect sandwich. The crisp, pressed crust gives way to a tender interior packed with mild sausage, earthy mushrooms, and plenty of well-chopped, tender, bitter greens (no large, tough leaves to reckon with here!). It's combined with just enough pungent, tangy taleggio to bind them together into a tasty, cohesive whole. All of the elements are discernible and delicious on their own, but the perfectly balanced combination really shines. The crisp pickled vegetables served alongside are the perfect complement. Take advantage of the quiet, sunny space to enjoy it for lunch if you can; the sandwich also appears on the dinner menu, but you'll have to fight hordes of hungry locals after dark.
