Death by Sandwich at Manhattan Supper Club
This spruced-up ham-and-cheese sandwich is the stuff of gluttonous legend, and Manhattan Supper Club's version doesn't disappoint--organic Black Forest ham and Gruyere cheese inside freshly baked bread as soft as sponge cake. Topping it was a thick, sweet bechamel sauce. The sandwich itself is big, sliced in half so that two people can share it (and they should, given the $13 price), but I was able to eat it all. Big mistake. Cheese on cheese sauce on ham equals a logy afternoon (or morning, as this mini-review shows...), but one bite alone will suffice to make your food-freak-flag fly.
