A Sandwich a Day

A different sandwich profiled every single day.

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.

Tips and tricks for making the best sandwiches at home.

If you have a lengthy layover at the Boston airport, conveniently around dinnertime, consider stopping at Boston Beer Works (especially if it's ridiculously close to your gate, as it was for me). The lobster roll ($17) is served on a New England style hot dog bun. Inside, there are large, sweet, meaty chunks of lobster meat. There was a mayo-based dressing, but only a pretty light touch with a slightly lemony flavor.

Between bun and crustacean, you'll find a lettuce leaf. Pretty simple construction overall, really. It's served with some decent cole slaw and a heap of fries.
