OK, so don't kill me here, I'm plebian, old and easily led astray- but Frenchie To Go is not half bad for a sandwich.

As most of my loyal readers know, I eat my main meal at lunch and hunt and gather for the PM.
Well, today, my good buddy Paga offered to go after a quite good lunch at BAT to Frenchie-To-Go which I've drifted by several times since it opened but never been seized by the throat to enter.
And, tonight we all shared a pulled pork sandwich that was spicy like no normal French person would make, some burrata and toasted bread that our friends up the street said was the best ever, and a weird, in a nice way, cold slaw.
Go again? I will pull a MacArthur - and if Chez Aline http://www.lefigaro.fr/sortir-paris/2... truly has the best jambon-beurre, this could become a trend.
"tonight, we all shared...". I'm not at all surprised that you liked Frenchie-To-Go (which is very, very good indeed) but I am stunned that Mr I-Only-Do-Lunch Talbott was prowling around Sentier in the evening.
One nice thing about Frenchie is that it has served as the magnet for turning this small, once neglected corner of Paris into a sort of foodie ghetto. Frenchie-to-Go, Frenchie Bar à Vins, the Terroirs d'Avenir shops, and the excellent Boutique des Saveurs all within a minute's stroll of each other.
We had good eats there. -- Who is arguing with you ?
The problem we had was that even going at 2:30pm, there was huge line and a huger crowd in such a small room that during part of the meal, one of us had to eat standing.
Might as well call it Frenchie To Stand.
