Finally got to check out the new Chez Maman on Cortland last night. I've been to the Potrero location only once. We had a very nice experience. We came in late, around nine. There were a couple of open tables and we were seated promptly. The room was cozy and nicely lit. The service was efficient and friendly.
We didn't want to eat much so we just split the endive salad and the merguez panini. Man, that was one good sandwich! Hot and nicely crisped with delicious caramelized onions and nutty gruyere. Salad was great too. Here's my question: I was torn between the merguez and the burger. How are the burgers? It will be hard to stay away from the merguez unless the burgers are super stellar.
