They include Perilla's Chicken-Parm Hero with Sausage, Steelhead Diner's Rich Boy, RM Seafood's Catfish Sloppy Joe, Lee Hefter's Steak Sandwich, and Bouchon Bakery's Tuna Nicoise Sandwich.

Taking the Esquire "Sandwich Encyclopedia" promotion one step further, Cafe57 was proud to host Chef James Vellano of Bouchon Bakery on Tuesday, March 11 at the Guest Chef Table. Chef Vellano and team prepared and served their signature Tuna Nicoise Sandwich, which generated much excitement among cafe guests familiar with Chef Thomas Keller's nuovo upscale French Boulangerie at the neighboring Time Warner Center.

Moving forward, Cafe57 plans to integrate at least one magazine promotion per month in an effort to support Hearst's in-house publications. Upcoming promotions to look out for in March and April include the following collaborations: House Beautiful, featuring recipes from The Barefoot Contessa, including Guest Chef Ina Garten; Good Housekeeping, showcasing an array of stunning Spring Desserts; O Magazine, introducing Oprah's favorite new line of gourmet Belgian chocolate bars from the "O List."
