Spanish mini sandwiches arrive in NYC
There?s no denying the fact that everything is cuter in miniature form. (Case in point: Alex Wang?s niece.) But applying the same logic to sandwiches?
Just wait until you try 100 Montaditos in the West Village.
In Spanish, montar means ?to mount,? so montaditos are tapas-style baguettes (about half the size of a hot-dog bun) that are piled high with meats, cheeses, chocolates or whatever you want, really. (There are 100 variations, hence the name.)
We recently hit up the casual new spot for an early night out with the girls. Three deceiving little numbers later (steak and cheddar, ham and arugula, and Manchego and red pepper), we were sufficiently stuffed. But we couldn?t help ourselves: On Wednesdays, every montadito is $1 and sangria and wine are $2 each.
Your move, Alia Wang.
