We love this New York deli-style takeaway sandwich bar, all in a simple and soigné décor of stone, wood and metal. It's the latest addition to the Frenchie family by Grégory Marchand and his team, so naturally wildly popular – come early to avoid the queues, and place your order at a large bar loaded with scones, cakes, cookies and muffins. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a seat inside, but more likely you’ll end up on one of the peaceful benches set around the streets and squares of Paris's ‘Little Egypt’.
On our visit we finally decided on the Reuben Sandwich with pastrami (smoked in house and teamed with coleslaw, beetroot and King’s cheddar) and a Pulled Pork (slow-cooked shredded meat seasoned with barbecue sauce, teamed with cauliflower and apple), plus a cone of fries, mayonnaise with ginger and a small, fresh salad. Sure, it's expensive (€12 for the Reuben, €22 for a lobster roll) – only to be expected, with Frenchie's reputation. But the stuff is so good that you can easily find a way to justify the luxury to yourself, especially given the quality of the products and the fact that everything is home made – from the ginger beer to the condiments. All you’ll want to do is go back – maybe for on eof their vast breakfasts with scones, bacon with maple syrup and steaming coffee…
