Today my boyfriend, his family and I went to see Fuerza Bruta. Before subjecting ourselves to standing on our feet for 70 minutes we decided to grab a bite to eat nearby at Cosi [Union Square, 14th Street]. I never heard of Cosi before but my boyfriend’s brother insisted we go there.
I get into random moods for food and decided I craved a sandwich. I ordered a Roasted Vegetable Sandwich with a side of Creamy Tomato Basil soup. The sandwich was spread with a feta cheese dressing, topped with romaine lettuce and an assortment of roasted vegetables: yellow squash, red bell peppers, onions and mushrooms. The bread itself was crunchy, whole grain and perfectly salted. The soup was a perfect complement with the right amount of creaminess to counteract the acidity of the tomatoes. I was in soup and sandwich heaven. I did like the soup better but the two worked wonderfully together.
I hope you go visit Cosi the next time you visit Union Square.
Peace, love and no beef!
