April seems to be the month of birthdays in my friend group. For my room mate Diya's birthday we went to Tartinery in Nolita. Their menu is based on the French concept of Tartines, or open faced sandwiches. You choose your type of bread and then order a massive amount of different tartines. They were all delcious, but I think my favorite was probably the Croque Monsieur, because let's be honest, a melted cheese sandwich is always a winner.
