Vegetarian Delights of NYC: Smoked Mozzarella, Fig, and Escarole Panini at Bar Tano

Leggero means "slight" or "light" in Italian, so it's a mystery why the folks at Brooklyn's Bar Tano dubbed this hearty panini the "Leggero." Maybe it's because the sandwich is meatless--however, it's anything but scrawny.

The toasted bread oozes melted smoked mozzarella, plus a slick of fig preserves, and a heaping portion of garlicky sauteed escarole. Sure, it's just a simple sandwich, but the flavors balance deliciously between bitter, sweet, and rich-cheesy.
