Le Fooding Guide’s Best finger-lickin’ joint 2014
Cleverly named “grillé” to put an end to the eternal debate over the proper Greek or Turkish term for these sandwiches, the soft galettes that are kneaded and baked in-house (unleavened dough made with organic wheat and spelt flours from Le Moulin des Moines) are filled with insanely good meats (suckling veal, lamb and pig from Desnoyer), flavored with mint, parsley, cilantro and one of three sauces: artisanal fromage blanc and horseradish; peas, cumin, mint and lemon; or chilies, green tomato pulp and sweet Sicilian onions. Gourmet, fresh, powerful flavors that’ll drive you wild, engulfed with or without homemade fries (a little mushy when we were there), seated on a barstool or at a table on the very small terrace. For dessert: artisanal ice cream (€3.50). And to drink: Gallia beer (€3.90) or a Patrick Font fruit juice (peach, cassis de Bourgogne, blood orange, €3.90). Grillé sandwiches €8.90, fries €3. // T.M.
