It's a Good One: Bed-Stuy's Summer Sandwich
A tomato sandwich might not seem thrilling, even to a tomato lover during tomato season. It sounds incomplete -- and possibly soggy. But in Bed-Stuy, where Lisa Bayer created the "summer tomato sandwich" just two months ago at her cafe, Tiny Cup, people already seem to be addicted. And for good reason. Thick-ish slices of ripe local yellow and red heirloom tomatoes plus tarragon mayonnaise (we like ours on toasted 7-grain bread) is an insanely delicious and surprisingly filling combination. The house salad has a simple, refreshing red-wine vinaigrette, chick peas, and sunflower and sesame seeds, and it all comes to $3.50. That's a real, real good one. (Also, for breakfast, the egg and fontina panino, for $2.50, is killer.)
