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.
Though Park Slope and Bay Ridge are quite different neighborhoods, bakery and sandwich shop Brooklyn Bread in the former reminded me of nothing so much as Paneantico, an awesomely old-school Italian bakery, in the latter. In both cases, it's hard not to crave a sandwich when you walk in and you're hit by the mouthwatering yeasty fumes of baking bread. While any of the prosciutto-mozzarella permutations seemed like a good bet, we were very happy with the Hot Roast Beef and Mozzarella ($8 roll, $10 hero). The roast beef, while nothing extraordinary, is salty and juicy and made better by a blanket of just-melted fresh mozzarella; olive oil and balsamic take it back into "Italian sandwich" camp. They definitely make this sandwich better, but really, the fresh, crusty roll and hot meat and cheese are enough to make this sandwich memorably delicious.
