The Skinny: A sandwich is a sandwich — at least until you have one from Bond & Smolders.
The BLT Nanterre offered plenty of bacon, lettuce and tomato served atop slices of griddled brioche. It was fresh and tasty, with the right amount of sweet from the tomato and the bread and nicely salty, courtesy of the bacon.
We held out great hope for the doughnuts by Nani’s Dough.
We sampled four — banana cream, glazed, cinnamon sugar and red velvet.
The flavors were good, but these huge doughnuts ($4 each) were almost too doughy, with little of the lighter-than-air quality that makes a doughnut one of life’s little pleasures.
Of the doughnuts we sampled, the cinnamon sugar fared best, with a delicate texture that was rolled in the right mix of spice and sweet.
I shouldn’t have written about that because now I’m hungry again.
