10 Best Sandwiches in New York
Great sandwiches can be humble, flashy, delicate, gut-busting. What they have in common is that they're built with care and made to carry. It's a tough sandwich competition in New York, but from patty melts and lobster rolls to meatball parms and vegetable subs, here are my 10 favorites right now.

10. Pork Slope / Porky Melt $6
Sometimes a trashy patty melt is just the thing. At Dale Talde's Pork Slope, you'll find two slices of marbled rye brushed with mustard hiding a squishy slab of sweet pork sausage, thick caramelized onions, and melted cheese. It's a fine little sandwich, soft and greasy. 247 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-768-7675
9. Mile End / Beef on Weck $12
The fantastic Montreal-style deli serves a lovely roast beef, folding in the thin slices of rare meat with a touch of grated horseradish. The filling is great, especially packed inside the kummelweck -- a hefty bun topped with caraway seeds and salt -- which Mile End bakes in house. 53 Bond Street, 212-529-2990 (available on weekday afternoons only)
