CheZaline (Paris)

Leading the race for the best sandwich in Paris, you’ll find Delphine Zampetti pedaling away at the front of the peloton. From behind the counter of this former horsemeat butcher shop (yellow tiling, white marble), renamed CheZaline as an homage to French singer Christophe, you’ll find a selection of sandwiches that are each as fine as thoroughbreds: a classic Prince de Paris ham / mayo / lettuce sandwich, or a fiery chorizo / tortilla de patata sandwich, made on half baguettes from Landemaine; explosively flavorful bonito escabèche with guindilla chilies, tapenade and lettuce on a round sesame bun… Or grab one of the other quick lunches that’ll have you howling with pleasure: a bright octopus salad with diced cucumber and celery, aroused by a lemon-Tabasco vinaigrette; incredible beetroot and red onion salad with a dynamite sherry vinegar dressing; or even the classic deviled eggs with chervil. And hip hip hurrah for the desserts, like the beloved apple crumble and the lemon-vanilla rice pudding. // G.LeP. & A.Sa.
