I was trying to go to a bistro called Le Comptoir du Relais; it was completely full (it almost never occurs to me to make reservations, so this actually happens a lot).  They do, however, have a small take-out window with sandwiches and pastries.  I figured this was a pretty good opportunity to try a ham and butter sandwich, which is supposedly the second most popular sandwich in France.

(The first?  Burgers.  Everyone loves burgers.)

Le Relais de l’Entrecote is so admirably single-minded about its dedication to steak frites that there’s literally no menu.  The only questions from the waitress are what you want to drink, and how you want your steak cooked.  That’s it.  If you want to eat something other than steak frites?  Get the hell out.
