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'll eat Brussels sprouts most ways you'll serve them to me, but the Thanksgiving Leftovers sandwich ($8.75) at the Park Slope outpost of 'sNice was the first time I've eaten them between bread. Considering 'sNice's vegetarian and vegan leanings, the sprouts make for a solid sandwich centerpiece. They're nicely nutty and roasted, and piled on a soft, crusty baguette along with thin, slightly caramelized slices of sweet potato. These vegetables are two of my favorite fall flavors and they make for a delicious combination of tastes and texture.
The sandwich also includes pieces of tofurkey, some form of vegan gravy, and a suggestion of cranberry jam. The first two did little more than add salt to the sandwich, but I really could have gone for more of that sweet, tangy cranberry. I was also surprised by the side of the day ($4.50 for a small box), an ample serving of mixed vegetables (more Brussels sprouts, squash, and carrots) and pasta lightly coated in olive oil. Some of the vegetables were a little undercooked, but the "small" was a pretty serious serving, definitely enough for a meal on its own.
