Duran Sandwiches Gives NoMad a Taste of Austria
From Num Pang and Inday to Eataly and Fika, it seems like the cuisines of the entire world are accessible in NoMad at affordable prices. However, there was a delicacy we didn’t even know we were missing: the Austrian open-faced sandwich!
Enter Duran Sandwiches. Since opening their first location in 1969, the Duran brothers, Vladimir and Thomas, have created a presence throughout Europe before coming to NYC. With over 25 European stores, it’s welcome news that Duran’s first NYC store is located in New York’s international culinary corridor, NoMad.
The Duran family knows a thing or two about bread: They operated bakeries and restaurants in the areas of the former Austro-Hungarian monarchy for over 100 years. The modern day Duran Sandwiches marries this baking expertise with scrumptious fillings, from sirloin steak to an egg salad/ham combination. For the more adventurous, the shop offers traditional Austrian favorites, including old-fashioned Hungarian salami and an Austrian caviar sandwich.
Not a meat eater? They also have a vegetarian menu with a huge selection of cheese, egg and vegetable combinations and an array of fish sandwiches from lobster and salmon to sardines. Equally exciting, these sandwiches, which are super healthy and freshly made with all natural ingredients, are priced from only $2.90 to $5.70 per sandwich.
