To all the curious folk on Rue Rambuteau, a word to the wise: pay no mind to the annoying designation of “best deli in town” scrawled out on the façade, or the cold Calacatta marble countertop and neon lights that seem like they belong in a cheap clothing store… Janet, the latest creation from Moïse Sfez (Homer Lobster), will provide you with comforting eats in the form of plump sandwiches filled with smoked meat. The house’s signature sandwich? Corned-beef-style pastrami, gently pickled and smoked in house. Nibbled on a barstool the day we went for lunch: a Janet, or two slices of toasted, homemade rye filled with 150 grams of pastrami (choose how fatty you want it to be), pickled cabbage that was both sweet and tangy, and a perfect mustard; along with a carefully made BBQ Beef Roll, made with beef slow-cooked for eight hours, shredded, glazed in barbecue sauce and covered in a generous amount of chives, sitting comfortably in a plump brioche bun. Want something on the side? Much like at an authentic deli, there are pickles, coleslaw and chips… flavored with truffles. // James Patisson

FEELING THIRSTY? In the stylish fridge, you’ll find lemonade (€3.50), ginger beer (€4.20) or Janet’s beer (€4.50).
PRICE: Sandwiches €6-15, menu €19 (with a side and a drink).
