Arrived Saturday around noon for our yearly meeting. Only room ready at Hotel Monteleone was an interior one, so I decided to wait for a better room. Checked my bags in and headed out for a walk.
Line was out the door at Cochon Butcher, but I was in no hurry. Went fairly quickly. Decided what better way to start the trip than with a Muffaletta. Found a seat right next to the register and settled in. Muffaletta was excellent, great fresh roll. Side of brussel sprouts was excellent as well.
Ended up going back there again the next two days. Had a breakfast sandwich on Sunday when they opened at 10 (no line), bacon, egg, arugula, tomato and cheddar cheese, yum. Next day went a little later, skipped breakfast and had an early lunch of duck pastrami sliders (ok, too much bread for me) and mac and cheese (very tasty, but filling). I really appreciate the care they take with every ingredient, my kind of place!
More to come..
