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 braised beef brisket sandwich ($9.87) is another seasonal favorite of ours at 'wichcraft. What stood out on the beef 'wich was a topping of shredded, lightly pickled veggies—cabbage, carrot, and bell pepper. It served the same function as banh mi veggies; refreshing with just enough acidity to cut through the richness of the beef and cheddar. And the beef itself was perfectly salty and moist, falling apart. I normally have some reservations about ciabatta sandwiches, expecting more of a yeast-scented rock than a great roll. But 'wichcraft does it right, with the edges super toasty and the bread soft and airy on the inside.
