VEGETARIAN DELIGHTS OF NYC: PRESS 195'S NO. 12

June 22, 2010 - View actual article by clicking here

 

Press 195 has been a Park Slope standby for years, and its extensive menu of sandwiches is a veritable garden of vegetarian delights. Case in point: the specimen pictured above.

 

What you're looking at is the No. 12, an enjoyable mess of fontina, provolone, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and black bean hummus. It's all squashed between fat slabs of ciabatta, and hot-pressed until it reaches optimum gooeyness.

 

While artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and cheese is hardly a novel combination -- particularly for anyone familiar with the vegetarian playbook used by most restaurants -- the black bean hummus gives unexpected dimension to the sandwich, balancing the salty insistence of the tomatoes and artichokes with a warm, Earth Mother-ish depth. The chief contribution of the melted cheese is, well, melted cheese, which is never a bad thing, particularly when there's plenty (but not too much) of it. And most importantly, all of the ingredients are layered equally throughout the sandwich, a small but crucial detail that eludes a surprising number of sandwich purveyors.

 

Taken together, the sum of the No. 12's parts -- including the terrifically crunchy-but-soft bread -- adds up to a meal that is both satisfying and, at $8.50, relatively inexpensive. And the gratis side of pickles, while a little on the sweet side, makes a refreshing accompaniment to the onslaught of the cheese, salt, and beans.
