Casse-Croute Tribeca Cafe: new sandwich place ...

CTer | Jul 30, 2002 01:33 PM

has opened in the original Kitchenette space (later Soup Pot and then The Little Place) on West Broadway between Murray and Warren. They are open for breakfast and lunch, Mon - Fri, with shorter hours on Sat. They get their breads from Balthazar, and their pastries from somewhere that makes beautiful stuff (don't know who, though).

So far, I've had 3 of their sandwiches, and their cafe au lait. The coffee was good, but a bit mild for me. The sandwiches:
"Le Pan-bagna" ($7.95) a salad nicoise on a round loaf of bread. Enough for 2 or even 3;
"Le Parisien" ($6.95) French-type ham, swiss, and sliced cornichons on BUTTERED baguette; also shareable;
"La Jardiniere" ($7.95) grilled veg, principally eggplant, some peppers and zucchini, with a flavorful-but-not-too-strong goat cheese on baguette.

We enjoyed all the sandwiches. Nothing extraneous, well-flavored ingredients, and all big enough to share. Two would have been plenty for 3 people.

They have only been open a couple of weeks, and are already culling their menu (fewer sandwiches, wraps, panini). They expect to keep the vegetarianish ones, considering the neighborhood. Definitely worth a try.
