Short Weekend in Manhattan

Here is what I am planning
Friday Afternoon - Katz
Friday Evening or Night - Yasuda (if i can sit by yasuda) or Babbo (if I can't)

Saturday Morning - Barney Greengrass
Saturday Afternoon - Undecided, perhaps a cheesesteak sandwich at pastis
Saturday Night - probably taken but looking for suggestions just in case

I have been craving sandwiches lately so let me know what your favorites in the city are. Also, if you can improve on my itenerary please do. I eat anything and everything and lots of it so I am also looking for absolute not to miss stuff as well. One caveat is I don't feel like wearing a jacket.

Thanks in advance.

  1. My current favorites:
    - The Duck Club at Blue Ribbon Bakery
    - Banh Mi at Momofuku Ssam Bar (dinner only)
    - Deep-fried Monte Cristo at Prune (brunch)
    - Most anything at Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop

    1. Whenever I am in the mood for a sandwich (or burger) I head to Bar 89,89 Mercer Street in SoHo. I haven't tried any of the pork sandwiches, but the Country Cousin, Tuna, BLT and Grilled Cheese are great. So are the appetizers! Affordable, except for the drinks, which are large and potent!

      1. 1. Bahn Mi from Saigon Bakery, 38 Mott street
        2. Lobster roll from Mary's( Pearl does not open for lunch on the weekend, or switch Katz's to Saturday and do Pearl for lunch Friday.)

        1. How about
          -tuna salad with sliced egg sandwich or Slow Roasted Pork sandwich at Bouchon Bakery (Time Warner Center)?
          -or pull pork sandwich at Gramercy Tavern (Bar)?
          -or Pork Buns or Banh Mi at Momofuku Ssam Bar (as suggested by kathryn)?
          - or Porchetta sandwich at Centovini?
          - or a quick bit of ham and fried egg sandwich with gorganzola cheese at wichcraft?
          - last but not least, ice-cream sandwich at Otto?

              hi tpigeon,

              Sorry for the confusion! The "Tartine of Slow Roasted Pork on Pain de Campagne spiced pulled pork shoulder, whole grain mustard, braised red cabbage and shaved Fuji apple" was the description of the pork sandwich that I had at Bouchon Bakery. I didn't remember exactly what kind of pork was in the my sandwich, so I looked it up on the internet. Now the description really triggers my craving for that sandwich!

          1. Sandwiches? Whenever we have a craving, we always end up getting our fix at Alidoro (Sullivan between Prince and Spring) for their very good Italian hero sandwiches.

            Oh, and jacket definitely not requirred.
