While most of us force down our sad desk lunches, people who work in the West Loop face a daily struggle of choosing between dozens of amazing lunch options from Au Cheval to J.P. Graziano. Add one more to the rotation now that TETE Charcuterie (1114 W Randolph St.) is offering sandwiches from 11:30 to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. They stopped by one of the other lunch hotspots, The Garage, to show off their new menu and we tried two of their sandwiches.

The jambon buerre is Parisian ham with simply gruyere on a buttered baguette. But despite the simplicity, it is a torpedo of salty, savory and crunchy.

The eggplant sandwich has fried eggplant slices flecked with crispy sesame seeds, creamy green goddess goat cheese as well as sweet and garlicky harissa aioli on a ciabetta roll.

They also offer an Italian sandwich with fennel sausage and house giardiniera and will offer a rotating weekly sandwich.
