Away from the traditional, chain-style fare offered in Times Square is Carve. A small corner shop, with unfortunately nowhere to sit, people line up to order any one of their uniquely superb sandwiches. The owner of Carve used to be a chef who was seen devotedly arranging and preparing the sandwiches with his staff behind the counter, thus proving the care and quality of the food.
My particular favorite is a steak sandwich layered with lettuce, tomato, has potatoes, and crispy onions with a blue cheese dressing. The flavors would just pop in your mouth and occasionally still do. Because lately, that care and quality just seem to be gone, apparently due to new owners. The menu selections are all still there, offering unique combinations like garlic pork with buttery red cabbage on sourdough, which you won't find anywhere else. But since I have the memory of what once was, I now go in with a tainted point of view.
