This Union Square sandwich shop enlisted Josh Sharkey, the chef from dearly departed Park Slope high-quality counter Bark Hot Dogs and a bona fide OG of the fast-casual craze. At this newbie, try the spicy Pork & Pickles, which tops chili-marinated pork belly with Korean cukes ($10) or a spin on the old chicken salad Chicken & Slaw, a mix of apple-date slaw, cold-charred bird and roasted garlic rémoulade wedged between slices of ciabatta ($10).
Bargain sandwich hunters should never relegate themselves to only a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich from their local bodega. New Yorkers love any meal stuffed between two slices of bread and we have the variety to prove it. Whether you’re hankering for a melty grilled cheese or a gut-busting chicken parm from one of the city’s best Italian sandwich shops, we found them all at prices that still leave room for a bottle of suds from a beer store. These are the best cheap sandwiches in New York.
