You can get a sandwich at almost any bodega, but it’s hard to come by complex creations like the ones at Caroline Fidanza's nautical-themed hole-in-the-wall. Saltie's speciality is salt-dusted focaccia sandwiches filled with briny meats and pickled vegetables, but the all-day menu also includes house-made sweets like caraway and pumpkin seed oatmeal cookies and fruit galettes. Sandwich-wise, go for the Balmy, which tastes ethereal in any weather and is filled with a vinegary symphony of chicken liver pate, ham, jalapeños, pickled vegetables, and mayonnaise.
