Time Out says

Despite translating to “the little Parisian,” the 19th-century newspaper that this French sandwich nook is named after once boasted the world's largest media circulation. Defunct since 1944, its memory lives on thanks to the the newspaper owner's great-grandsons—and first-time New York restaurateurs—Jean and Paul Dupuy, who lovingly papered the walls of their twee East Village shop with weathered issues found in a box in their grandmother’s attic. Sandwiches built with Orwasher’s Bakery baguettes and traditional cured meats likewise pay homage to history, with names reading like a who’s who of French icons: a Napoleon comes with saucisson sec (sausage) and butter; the Edith Piaf nestles cornichons and duck rillettes; and a Marie-Antoinette bookends 16-month cured ham with fresh goat cheese, olive oil and honey. Snag one of just six seats at the counter, fitted with reclaimed wood from a Connecticut printing plant, to make your sandwich a meal with Malongo coffee or sparkling lemonades by the Alsace-based Effervé.
