Grilled ham-and-cheddar biscuit at Amy's Bread

Grilled ham-and-cheddar biscuit at Amy's Bread
Briny American ham and New-York-State cheddar are crushed between a country cheese biscuit and pressed on the grill. The result is pure Southern comfort—a crumbly exterior and a dense middle moistened from generous swaths of French butter. Locations throughout the city; visit amysbread.com. $4.25.

Lamb ragu sliders at Anfora
Sloppy joes, welcome to the wine bar: These rich sliders offer ground lamb shoulder braised with tomato, rosemary and chili flakes, sandwiched in a crusty ciabatta roll and blanketed with a tangle of salty pecorino romano ribbons. 34 Eighth Ave between Jane and W 12th Sts (212-518-2722). $9.

Adult Cheese at the Commodore
Using the humble pimento cheese sandwich as a starting point, chef Stephen Tanner swaps the usual canned pimentos for fresh poblanos, delivering a spicy kick to the oozing, creamy filling—sharp cheddar, cream cheese and mayonnaise—at the center of this buttery sandwich. 366 Metropolitan Ave at Havemeyer St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-218-7632). $6.

Ruth Wilensky at Mile End
Noah Bernamoff's deli draws epic crowds for its Quebecois smoked meat, but this compact sandwich gets the underdog vote. A pressed onion roll contains a few modest slices of griddled beef salami plus a good smear of brown mustard. Requesting a Ruth without the condiment will cost you a little more than just your foodie cred—you'll pay ten cents extra for the foul. 97A Hoyt St between Atlantic Ave and Pacific St, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn (718-852-7510, mileendbrooklyn.com). $7.

Chicken biscuit at Pies 'n' Thighs
Salty fried chicken, spicy hot sauce, sweet honey butter and a flaky biscuit create a killer repast that hits the spot from morning till night. It also makes for Brooklyn's best calories-be-damned sandwich. 166 South 4th St at Driggs Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (347-529-6090, piesnthighs.com). $5.

Torta de la casa at Puebla Mini Market
This crunchy, chewy, jaw-stretching porcine beast contains a heap of carnitas, bacon and ham layered on griddle-crisped bread. The addition of avocado, refried beans, jalapeo, queso fresco and quesillo ensures a finger-licking mess. 3908 Fifth Ave between 39th and 40th Sts, Sunset Park, Brooklyn (718-435-3326). $7.

Scuttlebutt sandwich at Saltie
No meat is required to construct this handheld masterpiece: An ever-changing mix of seasonal fillings might include hard-boiled eggs, capers, radishes, black olives or feta cheese, all sitting between two planks of homemade focaccia slicked with garlic aioli. 378 Metropolitan Ave between Havemeyer St and Marcy Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-387-4777, saltieny.com) $9.

Fried bologna sandwich at Seersucker
Arkansas-born chef Robert Newton gives this humble snack a couple of urbane upgrades, swapping the Wonder Bread for a warm English muffin and squirt-bottle mustard for grainy Dijon. But the classic lunch meat is pure buttery goodness, just as it should be. 329 Smith St between Carroll and President Sts, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn (718-422-0444, seersuckerbrooklyn.com). $5.

The panama at Torrisi Italian Specialties
Twelve hours in a moisture-controlled oven makes the brined fowl in this spectacular turkey sandwich impossibly moist. The meat is glazed with honey, garlic and thyme, and stacked with lettuce, tomatoes, mayo and a spicy sauce inside a Parisi roll. 250 Mulberry St between Prince and Spring Sts (212-965-0955, piginahat.com). Roll $9, hero $11.
