Hester Street Fair Gets Serrano Sammies

One more update to bring you from the great outdoors the Hester Street Fair brings word that a new vendor, Jamon Jamon!, will sell flautas (or skinny, miniature-baguette sandwiches) inspired by Caf Viena, the Barcelona sandwicherie Mark Bittman so loved. The sandwiches will be stuffed with Serrano ham (not the top-of-the-line pata negra or Jabugo, it seems) as well as one of three options: goat-cheese spread, sundried-tomatogarlic spread, and a lighter tomatoolive-oil spread. Great! Now just put one of these on every street corner. Then again, the last Spain-inspired mini-sandwich concept didnt last a year.
