You gotta love it when your friends are in the New York Times' Dining Section! 'Alex Cocinera' (aka Alexandra Raij, chef at tapas bar 'Tia Pol') invited me to a sandwich potluck at her apartment this coming Friday. "bring enough for 12 people, make your favorite sandwich, I'd love to have you and your wife." Sounds great, but I hate making sandwiches. Last year, Alex had created a much publicized and very tasty "uni panini" - a mini baguette smeared with sea urchin and mustard oil. I could eat 3 or 4 of those, and I'd take one any day over your average cubano, or meatball sub....

Jimmy's No. 43 chef, Phillip Kirschen-Clark, is currently serving a dessert grilled cheese sandwich, with Nutella and Brooklyn made ricotta.
