Yves Jadot (Jones Wood Foundry, the Raines Law Room) recruited JWF chef Jason Hicks to open an eatery dedicated to the traditional French sandwich, the croque-monsieur. The shop will serve 16 variations, such as a classic version served with jambon, béchamel sauce and Gruyère on white bread, as well as more adventurous spins, like one layered with salmon and boursain. Order your sandwich and a glass of red or white on the narrow ground floor—once a print shop where Anaïs Nin worked—then ascend the stairs to grab one of the 22 seats on the second level.
