New York City is definitely in the grips of a gourmet sandwich trend, and especially in love with Asian sandwiches like a bahn mi. Baoguette is a teeny shop at 61 Lexington Ave., between 25th and 26th, with more locations throughout the city.

The signature sandwich is the eponymous Baoguette, and it's a fine version of the traditional sandwich, including pate, cold cuts, roasted pork, and lots of fresh cilantro, served on a very high quality baguette. Also worth a taste is the "Sloppy Bao" with spicy curried ground beef, green mango and basil. Don't miss the Vietnamese Iced Coffee, which a strong brew of New Orleans' Cafe du Monde chicory coffee and condensed milk.
