A Sandwich a Day: Beet & Egg Salad at Nectar

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.

Nectar's beet and egg salad sandwich ($7.00) is an unexpected and utterly fantastic twist on a classic. The spicy egg salad is liberally studded with chopped sour pickles, piled onto warm ciabatta with sweet, thick slabs of perfectly cooked beets, and served with a side of tangy, mayo-less slaw. This is not a tidy sandwich to eat; you'll need both hands to keep everything inside, but it's a substantial and delicious lunch. Stay to eat in the small dining area or head around the corner to Cobble Hill Park. Any of Nectar's fresh-squeezed juices or smoothies are an ideal accompaniment should you want something a little sweet to follow.
