A Sandwich a Day: Grilled Cheese at Sunshine Co.

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.

Sunshine Co. is a recent addition to the restaurants and cafes popping up on Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights. It's a little corner restaurant that serves brunch, lunch, and dinner, and it has stylish decor as well as gorgeous light pouring in through their defused windows.

Among their simple lunch menu is the savory Grilled Cheese ($9.00; add bacon for $2). It's melted Swiss topped with pickled shallots and mustard seeds between thick slices of buttery griddled white bread. The pickle on the shallots is subtle, just enough tangy enough to cut through the buttery cheese; mustard seeds add an unexpected spice I hadn't realized I craved. To boot, the sandwich comes with a generous side of thinly sliced sweet potato crisps.
