Between childhood and adulthood, "fun eating" goes from loving peanut butter and jelly to obsessing over organic pork belly. We aren't sure at what point knowing our food is sourced locally became more riveting than stuffing our faces with something sweet, but this seems to happen to the best of us. In the name of revisiting childhood favorites, we pay homage to the ultimate kid sandwich: the PB&J. It's OK, order one.

Whoa! Talk about the best of both worlds. Le Petit Marche has an entire section of their menu dedicated to gussied-up versions of the PB&J. Infused peanut butters? Multiple types of jams? Gourmands who want to eat like a kid will be in heaven here.
Because peanut butter and jelly shouldn't be limited to just lunch or snacks, this retro diner fills your breakfast need for the classic flavor combo. While the pumpkin pancakes here get all the press, their French toast PB&J is a secret weapon.
While you can get the PB&J in burger, breakfast or gourmet forms, sometimes the best version is the one you make yourself at home. For choice ingredients we turn to our favorite expensive grocer, Whole Foods. Happy sandwich-making!
