Dinner Tonight: Tartine Bakery's Tuna Tartine

Dinner Tonight Blake Royer Post a comment

If you've ever gotten the slightest bit interested in the art of making bread, chances are you've heard of Tartine, in San Francisco; they're widely known for making some of the best in the country. But the name Tartine is actually loosely translated as open-faced sandwich, and that's the sort of recipe featured in Edible Selby, a recently published compendium of photographer Todd Selby's whimsical columns regularly published in T: The New York Times Style Magazine.

A Sandwich a Day: Tuna with Tarragon Pesto from Bosie Tea Parlor

New York Erin Zimmer Post a comment

Green tuna might not be the most appealing sight. But it's green for a tasty reason: tarragon pesto. It's a bright, clean-tasting pesto mixed with dijonnaise for some creamy fattiness and a mustard bite. But don't be fooled; this is a fishy one, best reserved for sardine fans and the like. More

A Sandwich a Day: Terrifying Tuna Wrap at Kookoo Cafe in Brookline, MA

A Sandwich a Day Liz Bomze 1 comment

Leaving aside the sandwich's weird name—several of the cafe's specialties have equally goofy labels—it's a winning package of lightly dressed-almost fluffy-tuna salad and tabbouleh that's loaded with finely minced parsley and lemon juice, sweetened with diced tomatoes, and lightly bound with bulgur.

A Sandwich A Day: Fiat Café Italian Tuna Panino

New York Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

I cannot remember ever ordering a tuna sandwich—I have an irrational fear of mayonnaise and am turned off by the scent of standard tuna fish salad—but I was drawn to this Italian Tuna Panini ($6.50) at the adorable Fiat Café on Mott Street. More

Piccolo Cafe's tuna focaccia is better than most tuna sandwiches in Midtown. More

A Sandwich a Day: Tuna, Egg, and Anchovy at Bklyn Larder

I can count the number of memorable cold tuna sandwiches I've ever had on one hand, but am not at all surprised that Bklyn Larder makes a fabulous one. More

A Sandwich a Day: Nicois at Brioche Bakery & Cafe in San Francisco

A Sandwich a Day Lauren Sloss Post a comment

I think I may make it a new rule of thumb to order Mediterranean-style tuna salad whenever I see it on a menu. Using olive oil as a bind instead of mayonnaise, tuna salad becomes a light, refreshing lunch, rather than a gloppy pile of well, fishy-tasting fish. The tuna nicois sandwich ($7.75) at Brioche Bakery is a particularly excellent example of just how good this can be. More

A Sandwich A Day: Tuna Sandwich from Stellina

New York Shell Tu 2 comments

The tuna sandwich ($12), highly recommended by the staff, is a good one to order on a hot summer day. The tuna salad filling is quite light, with very finely smashed fresh tuna mixed with lemon juice, and shreds of watercress adding more light flavor to the sandwich. More

A Sandwich a Day: Tuna and Olive Flatbread Sandwich at Cafe des Épices in Marrakech, Morocco

A Sandwich a Day Hayley Daen 1 comment

Marrakech may not be right in your neighborhood, but the food alone will make you want to start planning a trip there. If you poke around the souks long enough, a five-minute walk from the Jemaa el-Fna will lead you to the Cafe des Épices. Painted a dusty red, Cafe des Épices stands tall above the rest of the spice market square. Of course you could order another tagine, but the sandwiches are a nice change of pace. This one is packed with fresh tuna, briny olives, and juicy tomatoes. More

A Sandwich A Day: Tuna Bella at Brooklyn Bread

New York Carey Jones Post a comment

It's often said that seafood and cheese in the Italian tradition shouldn't be paired, but after eating the Tuna Bella ($8 roll, $10 hero) at Park Slope bakery and sandwich shop Brooklyn Bread, I don't think I agree. More

A Sandwich a Day: Tuna Melt at Peninsula Creamery, Palo Alto, CA

Classic '50s diner and shake shop Peninsula Creamery, in Palo Alto's downtown and Stanford Shopping Center, may be known for their burgers and malts, but it's the tuna melt that I always order. More

A Sandwich A Day: Tuna Melt at Pranzo

New York Hannah Smith-Drelich 4 comments

This sandwich is a slight variation on the typical white bread diner version, as it's made instead on charred and supple flatbread. The pizza dough-like qualities of the flatbread cut the grease potential down to a bare minimum. More

A Sandwich A Day: Tuna & Fennel Salad at Fredi

New York Hannah Smith-Drelich 1 comment

The Tuna & Fennel Salad with provolone cheese melt and caper dressing ($7.95) sounds, in theory, like a fancy-pants tuna melt studded with a few capers to be different. This is not true. More

A Sandwich a Day: Oil-Poached Tuna from No. 7 Sub

New York Carey Jones 4 comments

There's a ton of fresh tuna crammed in here, poached until tender but firm, with crunchy haircot verts and fried shallots; the flavor recalls a Niçoise salad in a way we were quite happy with. Again, it seems that the best sandwiches at No. 7 are the simplest. More
