L'Epicerie du Verre Volé
Time Out says
‘Buffalo mozzarella, pesto Genovese and grilled artichokes’, ‘home made potted tuna, capers, artichokes and radishes’, ‘brawn with vinaigrette, sweet onions and Polish cornichons’, ‘horse tartare, herb mayonnaise and thai spice’, ‘smoked herring from Holland, radish puree, sweet onions, preserved lemons and cornichons’, ‘calf’s head pâté, gribiche sauce and watercress’…
Even though it might seem like it, you’re not reading a high-end bistro menu – this is the list of sandwiches at l’Epicerie du Verre Volé, the deli branch of the wonderful canal-side wine bar and restaurant (there’s also La Cave du Verre Volé at 38 Rue Oberkampf).
As well as all those sandwiches (€6.90 a throw, but quality has a price), which change with the seasons and the available produce, you can choose your own filling from the brilliant selection of ingredients: chorizo bellota, garlic sausage, ham, Comté, Brie, pâté and much more. Put it all between two pieces of excellent bread and enjoy a simple, gourmet lunch to take away.
