I have known L'Epicerie for quite some time now as my office used to be located in that part of town. Now that my company has moved, I can only sporadically go back to my favorite deli. Each visit however remains a wonderful moment.
It all starts with the owner, a warm, friendly man with a love for jazz and other people. He has turned his grocery shop into a small, cosy deli adorned with buddhist prayer flags (look at the ceiling) which -on top of all the rest- give it that extra touch.
And then, there is the food : the sandwiches are exquisite (my youngest son joined me for the first time last weekend : he said his guacamole-tomato-shrimps sandwich was the best he had ever had). Eating there is a real break from the surrounding hustle and bustle.
You should however be ready to take your time. As Mong is running a one-man show, service can be a little slow if you are really in a hurry.
