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 all of the slim pressed sandwiches at French cafe Douce France are worth a try, my favorite has always been the Misto ($7.50): a thin cut of chicken breast marinated in lemon and herbs, on light, crunchy pressed bread, with mushrooms, greens, sun-dried tomatoes, and an extra spread of lemon-herb marinade. Whereas many chicken breast sandwiches can be tough and dry, this white meat is flavorful and tender all the way through; the extra ingredients are delicious accents, not just intended to cover up the unexciting main meat. (The bite-sized fruit tarts always served on the side don't hurt, either.)
