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.
The Italian Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Sub at Saluggi's in Tribeca is satisfying and tasty, meat and greens inside a sesame seed hero roll that hails from a New Jersey bakery. The sandwich itself is uncomplicated, with only four ingredients: hot or sweet Italian sausage, roasted broccoli rabe, a dash of Parmesan, and finally a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Simple, but good—the best kind of sandwich. The hot sausage (of the pork variety and made in house at Saluggi's) stood up well to the slightly crunchy and bitter broccoli rabe providing a nice balance of contrasting flavors and textures. (Ours was a bit undercooked, but not enough to ruin the sandwich.) It comes in small ($9) and large ($13) sizes, but a small is definitely big enough for a large-ish lunch (particularly if you add the fries that come with it).
