A Sandwich a Day: Egg and Cheese at The Queens Kickshaw

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.

The classic Egg and Cheese is a beautiful thing, morning sustenance for a couple of bucks, as cheap and easy as they come. But for a few more dollars you can get yourself a substantial upgrade at The Queens Kickshaw, where the Egg and Cheese ($5) is filled with tender, creamy egg and a lush dollop of creamier ricotta. Thick-cut slices of Balthazar brioche are shellacked with crisps of gruyere, a salty, crusty jolt to the mild filling. When a grilled cheese sandwich features cheese on the inside and outside of the bread, it's twice as fun, and twice as good.
