Years ago, when I lived in the neighborhood, I wandered into this nondescript cheese shop and ordered a sandwich off the list. I quickly realized that what I held in my hand was a perfectly assembled fistful of cured meat, cheese and bread that would be the start of a long and fulfilling relationship with Lamazou. From that day forward, this place was a three day a week meal stop, and over the years I managed to eat my way through damn near everything in the deli case.
What you'll find at Lamazou is not only an incredible selection of cheeses (there is a cheese cave in the basement), but also various high quality cured meats. Both selections are incredible in their own right, but the real magic comes when the two are combined to make bomb ass sandwiches. Aziz is always happy to recommend something from the menu, and he'll also point you in the direction of what goodness in the cheese case is particularly off the hook...whether you ask or not. That's exactly the kind of personality and passion that makes this place amazing. Also present are various imported snacks and candies from around the world that I can neither pronounce or identify, but they're all interesting and tasty. Especially Taytos. Thanks England for giving me a way to order your potato chips without having to say the word "crisps".
A simple and delicious sandwich of salami, turkey breast, and provolone. The genius comes from the mind blowing quality of each. Across the board, we recommend the crusty ciabatta as the vehicle.
Perfect for the summer, this is a light and tasty sandwich with smoked salmon, lemon, capers and cornichons. As a matter of fact, we back anything on this menu with cornichons.
Similar to the Milano, but with a delicious mortadella.
Imported chorizo and manchengo. We're big fans of manchengo cheese, and well, Spain in general. One of our favorites.
A thick black pepper pate is spread on ciabatta with butter and those awesome cornichons. This is next level, and not something we could have in any regular rotation, but it's good.
You can usually find two homemade soups at Lamazou daily. We love the potato leek. Honestly, they're all pretty great, and you should ask about them.
