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 MOBs from Maimonide of Brooklyn may not be sandwiches in the strictest sense, but they're farther away from pizza, so let's call them open-faced sandwiches and run with it. And while we're doing so, let's run with The Bellycharmer ($8), a stew of eggplant, zucchini, and carrots with pistachios, mint, and cilantro atop flatbread. The sauce is light and Moroccan-ish: a little sweet, a little cumin, a little cinnamon, and it tastes a bit like a vegetable hug. The bread is a firm platform for its filling, crisp with a nice chew that gives just enough.
MOBs arrive on custom-made Brooklyn bridge-shaped platters, and it's not hard to imagine the MOBs as vegetarian ships sailing into the East River night. It's a cute addition to a fine sandwich, made all the more charming by Maimonide of Brooklyn's excellent kale chips.
