ANDERSONVILE & WEST LOOP— La Colombe will start serving Tete Charcuterie sandwiches from 11 a.m. until they sell out on Saturdays and Sundays at its Andersonville and West Loop coffee shops. The jambon buerre (ham with gruyere with salted butter on a baguette), salumi (chorizo, manchego, arugula, oven-roasted tomato on ciabatta) will be $7 with a limited supply. A veggie option is also in the works. [EaterWire]
