A Sandwich a Day

A different sandwich profiled every single day.

In this great nation 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.

While their muffuletta, layered with house-cured meats, is among the very best in New Orleans, Cochon Butcher's other sandwiches are almost as irresistible. I was particularly fond of the buckboard bacon melt ($9)—thick-cut lean shoulder bacon with smoky stewed collards, a pepper aioli, and Swiss cheese melting into every bite. The golden-browned bread only makes it all tastier.
