As the banks of snow on Miami Beach melt away, residents can stow away their winter's supply of canned beans as they begin to venture outside of their igloos for dining options. Today's Groupon is a warm welcome to hungry hibernators: for $8, you get a sandwich (up to an $8.35 value) and a bottle of house vinaigrette (a $9 value) at La Sandwicherie. This Groupon is not valid toward La Sandwicherie's combination sandwiches or hot plates.
Recently voted Miami's best sandwich by local eaters, La Sandwicherie has earned its savory stripes through the use of natural ingredients and bread baked fresh daily in its sandwiches. South Beach sandwichionados can opt for French bread or croissant bookends for their sandwich, with the usual array of toppings available to choose from, as well as the non-traditional topping of cornichons, French pickles rumored to give the power of dance to any who eat them. This Euro-centric flavor extends to La Sandwicherie's sandwich fillers as well. Alongside traditional cold-cut sandwiches skyscrapered with roast beef ($6.50), turkey ($6.25), or ham ($6.20), La Sandwicherie gets global in its gluttony with sandwiches topped with fresh mozzarella ($6.20), camembert ($6.20), pâté ($7.50), and prosciutto ($7.50). La Sandwicherie's French vinaigrette, another option for toption, is so beloved that La Sandwicherie sells bottles of it for customers to take home and use when lining their own sandwiches or Slip 'n Slides.
Since opening in 1988, the French-owned La Sandwicherie has satisfied sandwich-seeking stomachs well into the late-night hours, with a 5 a.m. last call for 'wich lovers. Seating at the blink-and-you-miss-it sandwich shop is limited to a few bar stools, so patrons might wish to enjoy their sandwich and sauce as they walk along the beach and count seagull retinas.
- La Sandwicherie's counterfolks consistently start with fresh, crusty French bread...Crisp toppings of choice come next: lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, hot pickled red peppers, black olives, red onion, cucumber, and — the pièce de résistance — cornichons (the little French pickles that particularly perk up pâté, but more important, contribute a tantalizing tang that normal pickle slices only weakly mimic). Garnish-work is followed by a finishing splash of tart Dijon-based French vinaigrette. Voilà! — a damn good sandwich. – Lee Klein, Miami New Times
