One of my favorite breakfast restaurants in New York City is Le Pain Quotidien. I almost always order the same thing which is a fig and ricotta open faced sandwich.
– fresh multigrain bread.
– fresh ricotta cheese….sometimes you can find it at Whole Foods. If not, a packaged version will do.
– any kind of fresh figs sliced
– high quality honey to drizzle on the top
P.S. Le Pain Quotidien is now located in six states and Washington DC.
