"If I'm not up for the trek to Brooklyn's Pies 'n' Thighs, I'll head over to Back Forty in the East Village for some good ol' chicken and waffles. Sure, that's not a sandwich, per se, and sure, I've been a vegetarian for four years, but there's no greater feeling than folding the waffle in half, enclosing the fried chicken in a fluffy grid of crispy goodness, and dipping it in syrup. It's the perfect mix of savory and grease. I mean, sweet." - Lauren Caruso, contributor network editor

"Love the Porchetta sandwich at Porchetta in the East Village. It’s super simple — just the pork, which has been slow roasted with spices, and a ciabatta roll. But, they put some of the crispy skin bits on it. I know the crack metaphor is grossly overused, but I really, REALLY mean it this time." - Justin Sedor, wellness assistant

"The best sandwich in the city is from Olive's in Soho. It's not on their regular menu, but every Thursday it's the special sandwich of the day. When I worked down in Soho, it was my lunch every Thursday without fail. Avocado sandwich: seven-grain bread with very generous amounts of fresh avocado, cheddar cheese, sprouts, tomatoes, and onions, tied perfectly together with a homemade chipotle mayo." - Meghan Coughlin, associate director, account management
