Muffins Café and Their Legendary Tuna Sandwich

muffins cafe tuna sandwichThe two months leading up to leaving NYC was filled with eating at restaurants that we (honestly I) needed to go to before leaving. Mr. Mari just followed my lead, leaving the decision making up to me. During the final few days of tying up loose ends (we were furniture less at this point), we stayed on the Upper West Side at our friends’. Mr. Mari spoke up. He had a place he wanted to visit one last time.

Mr. Mari had a client on the Upper West Side and every time he’d visit this office, he’d stop at The Muffins Café for lunch and order the same thing: a tuna sandwich and lemon pound cake.

This sandwich has presented one of the only food kerfuffles we’ve ever had since without realizing his “error”, he once said to someone, “It’s my FAVORITE tuna sandwich. Ever.” I make tuna salad OFTEN for us so you can see why I might have been irked. Needless to say, I’ve had this legendary sandwich and it is tasty. The best, maybe not, but it is damn good.

We figured out that what makes this sandwich so amazing to Mr. Mari is the addition of dill, which I rarely use. So now I put dill in my tuna salad. And although we now joke about his favorite tuna sandwich, my competitive streak will always make me hungry to hold the title for Mr. Mari's Favorite Tuna Sandwich. Ever.
