City Sandwich's menu overflows with enticing-sounding items like Portuguese sausage, broccoli rabe, and homemade yogurt sauce, loaded onto fresh baked bread made specially with Portuguese pao de agua flour. Twice a day, pans of half-baked buns are delivered to City Sandwich for a final turn in on-site ovens so they're hot, crusty and blistered. Many of the sandwich stuffings come from neighborhood purveyors: meats hail from Hell's Kitchen butcher Piccinini, and Styles Vegetable House sends over leafy greens and juicy tomatoes on a daily basis. Despite the breadth of exotic choices like bacalao and blood sausage, it's better to stick with straightforward offerings. One that shines is the Todd (all sandwiches are named for the owner's friends and relations), a souped up BLT that subs pancetta for quotidian bacon. The Diane, laden with warm roasted veggies and goat cheese, also works. The shop's simple surroundings convey neither the corporate look of a fast food chain nor the homey feel of a hole-in-the-wall—instead this is just a regular place to scarf a sandwich.
