Wanted: Dream sandwich, below 14th

Tom Philpott | Jun 19, 2002 01:53 PM

Once upon a time, Balthazaar's little bakery shop front sold a wonderful sandwich. It was simply prosciutto, parmigiano-reggiano, roasted peppers, and arugula on ciabatta. It was divine. It's gone. Now they have perfectly nice chicken breast and turkey sandwiches, just like everywhere else.
I just popped up there on the off chance they had brought back my dream sandwich. They hadn't. I went to Dean & Deluca and got a pretty ok sandwich of Italian meats, provolone, and red peppers. But I'm still pining for my old flame.

Anyone know where I can get something similar below 14th? I like the pressed sandwiches at Murray's Cheese just fine, but they don't use ciabatta, and they I don't think they combine prosciutto and parmigiano-reggiano.

Very much obliged.
