Deli sandwiches: Let’s discuss ’em.
You’ve eaten them your entire life. They’re available on basically any corner imaginable. And as comforting as a turkey on wheat can be...it’s not exactly blowing your socks off anymore.
Bröd Kitchen might change that.
A sun-drenched new café on the Upper East Side, it serves up the usual suspects of soups, salads, pastries along with...Nordic-inspired sammies.
The English and South African duo behind the shop (who really just love Scandinavia) take smørrebrød (a single, thin piece of Danish rye bread) and top it with combinations like tomatoes and cream cheese, apples and Brie, and roast beef and cornichons. Oh, and a dill-and-caper egg salad that almost made us cry.
If you’re not likely to frequent uptown, be on the lookout for Bröd to open its second location near Washington Square Park around April.
We’ve already started planning our open-faced picnic spread.
