I need a croque madame tonight (for dinner)! Help!

Hey Chowhounds,

I need the hivemind's help on this one. I really have a hankerin' for a croque madame with fries, and I need it tonight. Any thoughts? I realize that most places (brasseries, etc.) have a croque madame on their menus, but usually only for lunch.

Preferably Westside but I can do West Hollywood and Hollywood too, or thereabouts.

Thanks in advance!

    I'm glad you clarified what you need your croque madame for, donnival.

    Have you called any of the lunch places to see if they'll make one for dinner? Taix, for example? It seems to be that kind of restaurant.

      Thanks for the recommendation, sbritchky. I was thinking about doing what you suggested (asking a place that has it for lunch and making me one for dinner) ... but instead I just made one at home.

      You DO need to have the Madame at Hatfield's! Most others pale by comparison.

        I absolutely adore this version but I was really looking for a "classic" version ... thanks for the suggestion nonetheless!
