A Sandwich a Day: Four P's at Bowery Eats

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.

We discovered the sandwich counter at Bowery Kitchen in Chelsea Market not too long ago. It's called Bowery Eats, and each of their sandwiches are available on a hero, white baguette, whole wheat roll, whole wheat loaf sliced, or rosemary focaccia. Their bread choices, quality ingredients, and long list of sandwich options makes going back a no brainer. And there's an array of daily specials that aren't to be missed.

One of those is the Four P's ($10). Its blend of roast pork, prosciutto, provolone, and roasted peppers eats like an Italian-inspired Cuban. It's a hot sandwich, so we opted for the more durable, crunchy baguette. Using prosciutto in place of ham gives the sandwich a deeper, porkier flavor, and the Italian influence is boosted with slightly sweet roasted peppers. Their juice softens up the crusty bread and works its way through the roast pork, which, although flavorful, spent a bit too long in the oven. It's a bit dry, but provolone melts its way throughout the sandwich and lends its rich salty body to every bite.
