21: Champs d'Elysee Sandwich from The Paisley Violin
Known as "the most beautiful avenue of the world," the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris is famous for its cafés, luxury specialty shops, crazy-expensive real estate, and clipped chestnut trees.
No less indulgent is the Champs d'Elysee sandwich from The Paisley Violin, the quirky bohemian bistro of Mediterranean and Euro-style edibles. And while Grand Avenue may never have the clipped chestnut trees of the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, it is home to one hell of a good sandwich.
Featuring roasted red peppers and artichokes atop triple cream Brie, baby spinach, and crunchy cucumber sprinkled with olive oil and a touch of aioli sauce on a beautiful sourdough baguette, the Champs d'Elysee sandwich is decadent deliciousness served up fresh and hearty-like.
Order it with Paisley's crazy-good potato salad and you've got yourself a plateful of pleasure.
