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).
