“Onward, Sandwich Crusaders!” I shouted from inside a busy midtown deli, holding fourteen sandwich sections and fourteen food tourists & NYers in tow. We sat down at the public tables in Worldwide Plaza and dug into our piping hot Grilled NY State Cheddar sandwiches, on pressed Pullman sourdough from Amy’s Bread. This gooey treat is layered with red onion, tomato, fresh cilantro and spicy chipotle pepper puree.
My Crusaders felt it ranked well among the five tastes we had on this Sandwich Tour of Hell’s Kitchen.
Once I narrowed down NY Mag’s uber-text to a simpler, easily digestible master list of 57 sandwiches, made a Google map of it all, I was on a personal quest to sample all sandwiches.
(Even though I’ve only tried eighteen so far, when you add it up, thats more than 1 sandwich a week. And that ain’t bad.)
