doner kebab on 23rd st

jen kalb | Feb 26, 1999 03:05 PM

A new spot on 23rd at Madison opened under the
offputting name of "La Sandwicherie". Would not have
spared it a glance except for a small "gyros" sign.
As it turns out, their gimmick is hot oven mideast
breads, not pitas, baked before your very eyes, which
they cut into appropriate lengths and fold over
various things including very good "milk fed veal"
doner, chicken doner, falafel and other more standard
fillings. Dig the guy waving his big carving knife
around. At $5 for the rather large sandwich, its not
bargain fare, but definitely a cut above most NY
greasy gyros.
