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.
What the Goat Cheese and Beet sandwich ($8.50) from Valley Shepherd Creamery lacks in meat, it makes up for in heft and flavor. There's a heavy smear of goat cheese that's made at the store's farm in Long Valley, New Jersey, and the Park Slope shop gets their pickled beets from just a few avenues over at Brooklyn Brine. They're tender and earthy, with just a subtle vinegary bite; wild arugula adds more. A soft, chewy roll from Grandaisy holds it all together.
Yes, there are caramelized walnuts, too, and even a raspberry vinaigrette. But if we are still to have beet and goat cheese sandwiches, let them be as good as this one.
