It's quite rare, in fact almost never, that one sees the pairing of pumpernickel and mozzarella on a sandwich. The former is a German rye bread, dark and slightly sweet. The latter is an Italian soft cheese that, at its best, bleeds a bit of milk with every slice. Yet, in the Avocado and Fresh Mozzarella sandwich at Ronnybrook Milk Bar, the combination works almost perfectly.

For a sandwich with 'Roast Chicken' in its name, this guy is much more about the gooey cheddar, slightly spicy mayo, and creamy avocado, but we aren't really complaining.
Our lives changed the day we decided to stick some gelato into a kouign amann from two great Soho spots a five minute walk away. It got us thinking: what other great sandwiches could we make around town? And who says an ice cream sandwich must be limited to cookie plus ice cream?
We don't have much in the way of farm-to-freezer ice cream in this city, which is why I'm all the more grateful for Ronnybrook Milk Bar in Chelsea Market.
Are you one of those people who likes to stir their ice cream until it starts to melt, waiting eagerly to spoon up the deliciously sweet ice cream soup? I am, which is one reason that I love Ronnybrook Farm's Coffee Milk ($1.75).
