A Sandwich a Day: Leg of Lamb at Bedouin Tent

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.

Bedouin Tent, much like its Manhattan cousin Moustache Pitza, specializes in various of pitzas, using made-to-order rounds of pita as the foundation for much of its menu.

The fluffy, flour-dusted pitas are are just as enjoyable when used to construct a wrap. Bedouin Tent's leg of lamb sandwich ($8) rolls just-baked pita around green letttuce, tomato, onion, and (of course) slices of roasted leg of lamb. The well-done lamb meat is powerfully seasoned, particularly heavy on black pepper and roasted garlic and nudged to a higher level of flavor by the house's tasty lemon-mint mayonaise. While the slices of lamb are not always as tender as they should be, Bedouin Tent hands over enough hits to make this one worth a try—epsecially with a pitza pie on the side.
