A Sandwich A Day: Praga Completo from Via Quadronno

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.

With a small storefront, Via Quadronno is an Italian restaurant that serves an extensive list of classic Italian sandwiches all day; Praga Completo ($12) is under their special panini list, which includes more than ten other sandwiches ranging from $10.50 to $15. (Hey, that's the neighborhood.) Neatly packed in a slender loaf of house-baked bread, thin layers of ham are mild and not too salty, complemented by the fruity and nutty Fontina; if that weren't enough cheese, melted brie oozes out softly. Smeared on both slices of the bread, the house duck pate enriches the sandwich even further. It's rich but enticing, no matter what the summer weather.
