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.
Everything you need to make the most important meal of the day delicious.
In our tour of cheap Chinatown squishy white-bread sandwiches, the Banana French Toast ($2.50) was a fun find—fine, this is a breakfast, but it's a breakfast constructed like a sandwich. A breakfast sandwich of a non-savory sort. Here, the egg and bread are basically separate, rather than the bread being soaked in a sweet eggy custard; it's in two layers with soft bananas in between, soaked through in generic "maple" syrup.
Best French toast you've ever had? Nope. But a sizable breakfast and as good as you'll find at plenty of $15 brunches around Manhattan, for less than a quarter of the price.
On the savory side, there's the Fresh Beef And Egg Sandwich ($3), essentially a beef omelet between two slices of soft white bread. A little undersalted, but that's easy enough to remedy; and again, three dollars for a massive pile of reasonably tender meat bits and fluffy, crisp-edged eggs? We're in.
