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.
Everything you need to know about eating and cooking with curds
Sandwiches are made to order behind the counter at About Cheese, a tiny slice of a cheese boutique in the Village, which also stocks an admirable spread of tempting preserves, honey, and croissants. Thin slices of bread are layered with two-year aged cheddar, muenster cheese, and paper-thin slices of La Quercia prosciutto, then toasted up in a panini press. Walk down Church Street with this molten cheese-filled sandwich wrapped up in butcher paper like a hot little hand-warmer.
For $7.25, you get a sandwich big enough to crush even the most intense cheese craving, but the aggressive cheesiness makes it best shared, or enjoyed in two sittings: one when the cheese is at its meltiest, and later, when it has firmed up a bit.
