Looking for unique twist on a culinary classic? Then head to Duran European Sandwiches, 529 N. Milwaukee Ave. (312-666-6007). The main attraction in this light-filled space with a coffeehouse vibe is a sandwich case filled with 28 different kinds of open-faced beauties, each a miniature work of art thanks to carefully arranged toppings and flourishes of herbs, egg and olives. They're $2.50 to $3.50 a pop and a trio makes a nice light meal, hence Duran's deal of three sandwiches and a La Colombe coffee for $10. All sandwiches are served cold and start with European white bread baked La Fournette in Old Town using special iron molds Miller brought back from Austria.
