Stumbled across a new sandwich place, Daniele's Piadina, on 22nd St near 6th Ave. Right now, the menu's got just 7 different sandwiches, all VERY Italian and stuffed into piadina flatbread. (prosciutto, Strachino and arugula is one example.)
It's cute and bright and small. Reminds me a lot of F&B on 23rd. There's a counter with a few seats here, but it's really aiming at takeout and deliveries. Didn't try the food.
On the plus side, it's very close to the New York Cake and Baking Supply Co., which is a great stop for cooks.
This neighborhood is starting look better. It's long been a dead zone for decent, simple meals, except for the amazing and grungy Great Burrito. (Outback Steak and Olive Garden are NOT eligible).
Now we've got Daniele's Piadina, Rickshaw (ok, it's not amazing, but it's better than Cosi), Pongsri and R.U.B. all within a block or two.
