In this great country 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 the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
A toasted slice of housemade rosemary and currant toast is the base for Euro Pane's famed Egg Salad Sandwich. There's a slather of tomato pesto to bind the handful of fresh arugula. Then comes the star of the show: egg salad.
There's a reason this sandwich has inspired a mini cult of loyal devotees. The eggs taste more like they've been gently poached as opposed to boiled. The still-soft yolks blend with the mayo—ceamy, velvety bites are piled generously on the toast with a smattering of chives to finish it off.
