Last week, I read all about the Croque-Monsieur and -Madame in this month's issue of Elle Decor. "The French take on a ham and cheese sandwich."
Had to have one.
Although Cafe Bonaparte stopped serving this sandwich after 5pm, I was lucky enough to see it on the menu at Open City during Sunday brunch.
Hot ham and cheese (gruyere), smothered in Bechamel sauce and topped with a fried egg. The salad was equally amazing.
