Sunny and Annie’s is a bodega on Avenue B that makes an inordinate number of giant sandwiches, ranging from a great BEC, to a pho-themed one with roast beef and hoisin sauce and something called the Obama. There are no seats here (because it’s a bodega), but you can bring your food to Tompkins Square Park and have a picnic. After an experience like that, you’ll be able to confidently assure all of your first dates that you are, in fact, fun, low-maintenance, and connected to Obama via a sandwich.
