Chilean sandwiches

Doing a search, I found this discussed four years ago, so I decided that a more recent discussion is in order.

Those who read the Boston board know that Chacarero, a Chilean sandwich shop in Downtown Boston, is one of the most recommended places on that board. They are a Monday-through-Friday-lunch-only operation that sells exactly one item -- albeit in several different varieties -- a chacarero sandwich. The sandwich in its most basic form is grilled chicken or beef on a homemade round loaf topped with muenster cheese, steamed green beans, fresh tomatoes, salt, pepper, hot sauce and avocado spread. Mmmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Does anyone have a recommendation for chacareros in the NYC area?
