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.
Lunch at Vandaag offers a variety of smørrebrød options, best understood as open-faced sandwiches. Think of options like an earthy and surprisingly meaty Mushroom And Hazelnut Terrine smørrebrød, which comes outfitted with watercress and a paprika-spiked buttermilk dressing, or a mountain of duck confit over rye bread. My current favorite is the Snail Smørrebrød ($13), in which nearly a dozen snails, still warm, are lightly coated in a creamy, savory dressing and served a toasted slice of crusty, hearty bread. Lest you think this might be too heavy, the snails and dressing are punctuated with whole toasted hazelnuts and a bright kiss of Meyer lemon with a bare finish of bitter red dandelion greens. It's all about balance of flavors and textures, something finely exhibited with this sandwich.
