Windsor Terrace: Brooklyn Commune’s BLT
Maybe, for purists, the BLT is the kind of sandwich that can’t—or shouldn’t—be improved upon, but we’re anything but catholic in our tastes, and we love what Brooklyn Commune has done with the BLT. The main ingredients are all exactly what you’d want: thick-cut, perfectly crisp bacon (and plenty of it), fresh lettuce, and ripe, juicy tomatoes. But what Brooklyn Commune added is a slick of smashed avocado on one piece of the bread and savory tomato jam on the other, lending just the right amount of creaminess, plus an extra hit of umami, making this simple sandwich so much more than the sum of its admittedly already excellent parts.
