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.
Il Cane Rosso has become a household name in Ferry Building terms thanks to their slow-cooked delectable pork and beef sandwiches. But you'd be remiss to ignore the non-meat-centric offerings Rosso has to offer, like the Spicy Delicata Squash ($9). An offering on the winter menu, I assumed a squash sandwich would be sweet. But the combination of delicata squash, creamy crescenza cheese, and pepita pesto was delightfully savory. Vinegar-coated radicchio adds excellent freshness and crunch, providing a great contrast in both texture and flavor. Encased in generous slices of fluffy, craggy-crusted foccacia, the sandwich is a messy, surprising mix so good you'll be swiping dropped bits of squash off the plate with your fingers.
