Sometimes, you just want a sandwich for lunch - but not a sad one that’s been sitting in shrink wrap at a grocery store, waiting for a kind stranger to put it out of its misery. That’s what Le Petit Parisien is for. This is a French sandwich shop in Midtown East, and it serves some very good sandwiches on soft, chewy baguette, with ingredients like ham, smoked salmon, and duck rillettes. It’s also a charming little place with a patio out front where you can eat your sandwich and pretend you’re in Paris (if you squint).

The best way for us to give you the lowdown on this place is to explain that it's really two different experiences: the bar, and the dining room. One is a three course, prixe fixe fine dining experience, the other sleek, more relaxed, often features some Action at the Bar. If you're going, go big and eat in the dining room.

Earl’s Beer & Cheese
Earl’s menu of pig and cheese heavy snacks pairs perfectly with the small but righteous selection of draft beers that they have on tap. Head up north sometime to check it out, and also visit Earl’s sister restaurant around the corner, ABV.
