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.
In 2009, when the Chelsea Court Meat Market closed after 49 years in business, nostalgists wailed and gnashed their teeth, while neighbors wondered anxiously what would take its place. It turned out to be a better version of the old butcher shop, serving higher quality meats at modest prices in a nicer atmosphere that still feels charmingly anachronistic. More than a change-can-be-good story, the Knickerbocker Meat Market is also a great place to get lunch. Each day, the pulled pork ($8.95) is slow-cooked, and the resulting sandwich, simple but tasty, offers a peppery bite in addition to the sweetness of the meat. Its super-moistness means you need to eat fast to avoid sogginess, but once you get a whiff, rapid gobbling won't be a problem.
