A Sandwich A Day: Le Languedoc at Financier Patisserie
In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
The Le Languedoc ($8.25) is a flavor-packed sandwich, and my go-to item at the French patisserie mini-chain, Financier. It's a great combination of ingredients: thinly sliced roast leg of lamb is accompanied by ratatouille, brie, and arugula in a warm, melty, hot-pressed sandwich. It all comes together deliciously and in perfect proportions; the bread is not too thick and has just the right amount of crispness and chew. All in all a highly satisfying sandwich—and with Financier's nine locations throughout the city, it's available in a pinch.
