Finding sandwich bliss
Saltie is a sandwich shop, about as big as a saltbox, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I ate there in April 2011 and still think about the sandwiches my companions and I sampled and shared. We tried the Captain's Daughter, whose combination of top-shelf sardines, house-pickled eggs and an herby salsa verde add up to a wildly delicious sum. The Clean Slate, which unites the familiar hummus and quinoa in a unique way with fresh sauerkraut, yogurt sauce and sesame seeds, woke us up with a far-from-mundane version of a healthy sandwich.
