Marvelous Mortadella Monster

I wandered into Bottega Falai (267 Lafayette St) totally clueless. I was hungry, it was lunchtime and they have that minimalist all-white design with all items in tiny-bottles that just screams ‘European’, and my was I hungry for some European food. I looked around and didn’t see much of anything beyond the anemic little panninis [...]

This Little Piggie is a Beefy Genius

“This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef” ( 149 First Ave., near 9th st, ) is a weird name for a sandwich joint that doesn’t even sell pork.

Bite Sandwiches Not People

Today’s double header is two panini’s from Bite (14th st, not Lafayette). Both are delicious. Bite is a great go-to spot for tasty sandwiches that aren’t too expensive ($6.25) or too experimental. They’ve got a decent menu of boring stuff (apps, salads, soups, zzzz), and a nice not-overwhelming list of hot and cold sandwiches. Aside [...]
