30 NYC Sandwiches We Loved in 2012

It's been a great year for sandwiches in this city. We found new loves in pastrami and patty melts. We celebrated grilled cheese in all its oozy forms. We even hacked a few sandwiches of our own.

But when you're eating a sandwich every day (and hey, we only report on one sandwich a day—we're eating more), you get to thinking, what makes a sandwich really, really special?

That's too involved of a question to answer here, but here's a partial response: 30 sandwiches that made our year. If you're thinking about your new years resolutions for 2013, consider this a to-do list.
