MILANESE AT VIA QUADRONNO
If you're on the Upper East Side and have a hankering for the kind of panini you'd get in Northern Italy, then Via Quadronno is the place for you. They have an all day menu of about two dozens special sandwiches that range from paninis with wild boar prosciutto, to a smoked ham with three cheeses and tabasco. The Milanese is one of their stand-outs. Generously filled with bresaola (air-cured beef), rucola, and hearts of palm, the sandwich is as rich and luxurious as its $13.50 price tag; but it's filling and decadent enough to eat as a once-in-a-while treat. The bresaola is juicy and flavorful and contrasts well with the spicy rucola and tangy hearts of palm. They have a full dinner menu as well, which I assume is just as good as their paninis.
