A Sandwich A Day: Tuna Sandwich from Heritage Meat Shop in Essex Street Market

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.

I like tuna salads whose flavor and moisture is based on something other than mayonnaise, like the American Pole-Caught Tuna Sandwich ($8) at Heritage Meat Shop. The tuna filling here is lemony and well-salted and not at all dry, on a simple just-crusty roll from Roberta's that cradles it perfectly. Heritage may be a specialty meat shop, but this less meaty sandwich is worth an order, too.
