You know that glorious moment when your sandwich is so big and juicy that there is no way to enjoy it and still look like a lady? That right there, is what we love most about this tasty holiday. Last minute but of the utmost importance, here is our top list of NYC's hottest sammies for every type of hungry girl out there. Eat up chicas!
Open Faced Pan Con Tomate Sandwich from Vandal
A Spanish staple, this jamón ibérico and burrata sandwich is a meat-lover's delight come true. Creamy, savory and placed atop a crispy aioli-infused baguette, this toothsome classic is simply irresistible.
Chicken Sliders from The Regency Bar & Grill
No girl can pass of a good, juicy slider, much less when it involves a thick slice of spicy fried chicken! Prepped with a delicious buttermilk fried chicken, spicy nduja and a toasted brioche, these petite yet tasty sliders are a burger gal's dream.
The MFC (Marc Forgione Chicken) Sandwich from American Cut
Featuring crispy fried chicken breast and scrumptious thigh meat, this mouthwatering sammie is topped with housemade bread and butter pickles, drizzled with chili-pink peppercorn honey-ranch sauce, then sprinkled with Celebrity spice blender Lior Lev Sercarz’s special spice blend (made with notes of tabasco and honey powder) and served on American Cut's famed everything biscuit. An absolute must, in our opinion.
Balkan Burger from Employees Only
This spiced pork and beef blend patty from Executive Chef Julia Jaksic is a modern take on the traditional Balkan street food, Pljeskavica. This exotic delight is served on warm pita, topped with Kajmak (an Eastern European dairy spread flavored with herbs and garlic), Ajvar (a roasted red pepper spread), thinly sliced romaine lettuce, chopped tomatoes and onions. To compliment, the savory dish comes with a very season-appropriate side of paprika fries and extra Kajmak for dipping.
Avocado and Sardines Sandwich from LaRina Pastificio & Vino
Bold, intricate and flavorful, this avocado and sardines sandwich is a beauty for all true foodies out there. Plated atop a housemade Italian focaccia, the two main ingredients are complimented with fresh arugula and creamy tartar sauce.
Fried Chicken Cotoletta from LaRina Pastificio & Vino
An Italian classic, this Brooklyn treat is made with crispy sweet and salty fried chicken, topped with a spicy tomato fra diavolo-mascarpone-honey spread and placed on a slice of toasted filone.
Jumbo Lump Crab Cake Sandwich from New York Yankees Steakhouse
The juiciest, most flavorful sammie of them all, this crab cake special topped with bibb lettuce, creole aioli and fennel slaw is eaten atop a crispy brioche bun and – if you're anything like us – devoured in seconds. "More please!"
Pulled Pork Sandwich from RoundHouse
Made with braised pork, smothered in gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste) and topped with sweet Asian pear, butter lettuce, pickles, slaw and kimchi aioli, this super loaded Asian-inspired sammie is everything.
