Another day, another random food holiday. We don't mind though, because that just means there's more price-slashed grub for us to feast on. Today, we honor the sandwich in all its forms, and we certainly don't discriminate between the fast food and the fancy. From a holiday-ready shawarma-braised turkey sammie to straight-up Mickey D's, here are seven delicious ways to commemorate National Sandwich Day.
Alidoro: The acclaimed Italian sub shop will offer half-off sandwiches at its Midtown location, which also celebrates its one-year anniversary today. Meat lovers can seek out the Pinocchio with prosciutto and soppressata ($13) while veggievores can munch on the Ortoletto ($11.50) with sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes and sweet roasted peppers.
Black Tree BK: Today only, try this shawarma-braised turkey sandwich ($13), bookending the bird with melted white cheddar and pickled pumpkin in a buttery ciabatta, topped with an Aleppo fried egg and labneh chimichurri.
Delmonico's: The steakhouse today introduces a new spicy fried chicken sandwich ($21), made with sriracha, spicy mayo, sweet pickles, and an Asian slaw on a brioche bun. Every order comes with a free draft pour of Lagunitas IPA.
Randolph Beer: Both the beer hall and its next-door sibling Randolph at Broome are slinging half-priced jerk chicken po ‘boys ($15) all day. That bad boy comes loaded with caramelized onions, jack cheese, cilantro aioli and house-made Louisiana-style voodoo chips.
Subway: The sandwich mega-chain is doing a buy-one-get-one deal, with the purchase of a 30oz drink.
The Bar Room: The American bistro is pouring a complimentary glass of beer or wine with any sandwich—including the Merguez ($16), with spicy lamb and mint yogurt stuffed into a grilled pita, and a chicken parmesan variety ($15), with marinara, cheddar and mixed greens.
