Lamazou-merci Dieu

guttergourmet | Mar 23, 2009 08:25 PM

Whenever I'm in Montreal I go everyday to a little boucherie/charcuterie called Marche de la Villette where I start my day with some saucission d'ail or pate de truffe or rosette de lyon on a baguette with dijon and cornichons and I sigh "why Dieu can't we have a little place like this in NYC?" After reading the NY Times article about Lamazou's sandwiches last week, I dared to hope. Sure enough, a cheese selection to rival anyplace andbaguettes from Balthazar. I ordered two half sandwiches-smoked duck breast sliced with some brie and the obligatory cornichons and dijon on a fresh baguette and the duck liver mousse with just the mustard and the cornichons. Ooh la la. C'est magnifique. Next time I try the wild boar and venison pates. Other nationalities (Spanish and Italian) are also well represented as I also took home a rosemary rind encrusted manchego and two ciabatta rolls..
