Discover New York City

Discover New York City is a guide to the local independent businesses that are the heart and soul of NYC. Support indie businesses!

I love the independent businesses in New York, they are the heart and soul of the city! In this section you will find bookstores, cafés, restaurants, arts & crafts markets and more. It's an ongoing project to list the best of indie New York so visit often to discover the real New York City. Note - I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like.


Le Petit Parisien, East Village, Manhattan

Love Le Petit Parisien! Originally I ate at their East Midtown location. I just had to eat there again! The sandwiches which are served on a half a baguette are fabulous! It's a real baguette as well! Firm on the outside and soft on the inside. I've had the Le Parisien and also the Gainsbourg sandwiches and I can pretend I'm in Paris! I've yet to find anything else like it in NYC!

Le Petit Parisien, 32 East 7th Street
