My First Favorite Sandwich Place in NYC

When I moved into the POPSUGAR offices in New York, the first sandwich place everyone told me to try was Spreads. I needed very little convincing, especially when I saw a salmon sandwich on the menu.

This wasn't just any salmon sandwich. Served on soft, toasty ciabatta, this was applewood hot-smoked salmon with pickled tomato jalapeno salsa, served warm. The fish was so delicious and bacon-like, I didn't even get the brown sugar bacon on top. Honestly, this sandwich sort of blew my mind.

I've since had the pleasure of enjoying a catered lunch spread or two from Spreads, and every sandwich I've sampled has been excellent. My second favorite so far is the aged cheddar and grilled asparagus with black truffle spread. I'm officially declaring, for now, that this my favorite sandwich spot by work.
