At Little Bread, Bread + Butter chef and owner Alberto Cabrera takes the Cuban sandwich to new heights. The turkey for his Elena Ruz is basted for hours in a Malta glaze that gives the bird a shiny, crackly shell. Cuban sandwiches are graced with pork belly prepared in the French rillette style and combined with house-made mustard and pickles. These amped-up varieties are a bit pricier than their cafeteria counterparts, but they are worth every penny -- and a natural extension of the sandwiches that have secured their place as classic bites of Americana.
