When I moved to NY, people asked what kind of food I love most (hoping to be able to say, "Oh, you're going to miss that SO much!") However, my answer to that question is sandwiches. Not ham and American cheese on white. I mean good, gourmet, deli sandwiches that come pressed or on toasted baguettes. Luckily for me - they're basically on every street corner in the city.
One of my favorite places so far happens to be right across the street on Reade. It's just a little corner deli/grocery store that serves all kinds of speciality foods. My favorite so far is the grilled chicken with brie cheese. I add avocado, sprouts, tomato, and light mayo (all on a toasted bun). NOM.
