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. I have eaten in restaurants and had coffee in cafes that I had thought that I would write about.


Le Petit Parisien, Midtown, Manhattan

Le Petit Parisien makes real French sandwiches on half of a baguette. The baguette is the French style with a real bite to it rather than the too often typical soft style which is found in NYC. I had Le Parisien which is ham and butter with cornichons added on. I'll be going back again! They a menu of 10 authentic French sandwiches as well as French pastries. There's also an East Village location which I'll try in the near future.
