GRILLED SHRIMP ON FRENCH BREAD FROM SAGAPONACK
The owners of Sagaponack in the Flatiron district have given their restaurant a Hamptonesque vibe and filled their menu with primarily seafood and fish options. The grilled shrimp sandwich ($10) with roasted peppers, bacon and a lemon-thyme mayo is one of those sandwiches that would be hard to mess up. The shrimp is grilled perfectly and bacon always makes any sandwich better. My only caveat was that there's too much bread and the shrimp gets a little lost in the mix. It would have probably worked best on slices of sourdough bread. However, the pesto fries as a side are fantastic - just enough pesto added to spice up a boring french fry.
