Tartine can be best described in French as a classic gourmet slice of bread with the best toppings. If you are in the mood for something sweet, try the sweet berries and mascarpone tartine. And if you have the appetite for something packed with flavor, the lobster & béchamel tartine is simply delicious and divine.
