Tiny’s Giant is a small, bright, all-day spot on the LES best known for meat-heavy sandwiches. The one with turkey, bacon, and spicy mayo is a good lunch option, and the smaller size of that should fill you up without forcing you to move your keyboard so you can nap at your desk. If you want something lighter, they also have salads that feature many of the same sandwich fillings over huge piles of greens. Our go-to is the one that comes with a bunch of different vegetables and cheeses, plus avocado and chickpeas. Add grilled chicken and you’ll have more than enough to share with a friend.
