Alerted by Jim's post I dropped by "Thè Adorè" (17 E.13th St 212-243-8742) to check out the sandwiches.
As reported, very good stuff served on Tom Cat Baguette.
Another suggestion for that nabe is around the corner at 106 University Place between 12th & 13th (212-229-6752). "La Baguette Shop" serves on their own tremendous bread baked continuously throughout the day. A wider baguette than the Tom Cat I find it to be sensational. Theirs are more traditional roast beef, chicken, brie sandwiches and run about the same price. They also serve a surprisingly good espresso with attention paid to the crema.
