Best Monte Cristo in NE?

Coming from Florida, there was only a couple places I can think of in Fort Lauderdale that served a proper Monte Cristo, that is, deep fried and served with maple syrup. I have yet to find a place in RI or Mass that even has it on the menu! Anyone know of a good one?

  1. Zaleks in Wakefield, MA has an excellent Monte Cristo. You need to ask for maple syrup. They do have some, but the kids who work the counter don't seem to know this. Ask one of the cooks. (They also make the absolute best fried scallops I have ever tasted!!)
