I met the owner today and he said that he worked at La Sandwicherie for more than ten years and that Le Petit Prince is affiliated with La Sandwicherie. I'm not a reporter or columnist so I did not contact La Sandwicherie for confirmation.
The menu is almost identical and features the same classic sauce and staple toppings minus hot peppers. I've frequented Sandwicherie regularly for 15 years or so and almost always order a Salami/Provolone with every topping minus the hot peppers... so guess what I ordered today at Le Petit?? A hamburger.. ok just kididng. I went with my favorite combo, the salami/provolone with everything. Petit's version was prepared the same and featured very fresh toppings including the crowd pleasing cornichons and the addictive homemade vinaigrette sauce. Mmmmm sooo good. The only noticeable difference was the bread. Petit's was much softer than the crisp exterior provided by Sandwicherie. It wasn't bad, just different. The owner claimed that people complained about the tough and crispy bread but I was not one of the haters. I thought the bread was a signature of their sandwich and hope Petit goes that route.
Le Petit Prince offers the same classic sandwiches, salads, smoothies and juices that have been pleasing numerous SoBe locals and tourists for years. In addition, they also offer breakfast items and several crepes.
My initial visit was very enjoyable and promising. Hopefully, they will be busy enough to keep everything fresh and tasty. I have high hopes for this place. Tell them The Chowfather sent you.
