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.

On any given day come lunchtime, there's always a lengthy wait at Aux Delices, a tiny cafe nestled on the corner of Greenwich's main shopping street. The shop is run by Debra Ponzek, a chef and cookbook author who has received nods from Food & Wine and the James Beard Foundation. Her prepared specialty foods and freshly baked desserts do not disappoint. The extensive sandwich list may render you completely indecisive, but if you're into sandwich simplicity, go with the tomato mozzarella panini ($8.25).

Think generous slices of dense mozzarella drizzled liberally with olive oil and topped with a few sprigs of basil, all between two toasty pieces of flatbread. It might be better with a more substantial bread, like a French baguette, but I wasn't complaining. It's heavy on the mozzarella. Cheese lovers, this one's for you.
