The Tribeca shop has unveiled 10 signature sandwiches from fancy Big Apple chefs. Think whitefish salad with jalapeño cream cheese from Marc Forgione or pistachio pesto with mortadella, taleggio and arugula on an everything bagel from Landmarc’s Marc Murphy.

Zucker’s says it will donate 10% of proceeds from each sandwich sold to local organizations including New York City Rescue Mission, City Harvest and Manhattan Youth Community Center
