There’s no food quite like a sandwich is there? I could wax rhapsodic now, extoll the virtues of this inherently humble food, but that would go against everything that makes a sandwich so perfect. What’s great about sandwiches is that they can be as simple as you want them to be, but they can also be elevated to such a degree that they’d belong on the menu of the finest of restaurants. Plus, they’re unfailingly satisfying. And so, in celebration of the sandwich, we’ve chosen twenty of Brooklyn’s finest examples, each from a different neighborhood, and from a variety of cuisines. We can’t recommend highly enough that you try them all. It’s a tough mission to set for yourself, but we believe in you. Enjoy. And try not to drool on your keyboard.
