a search for a Ham and Brie sandwich...

I'd like to find a delicious ham and brie sandwich for my husband. Maybe with a yummy chutney or delicious mustard? Served warm would be amazing. I don't eat meat so I don't know a lot about ham (smoked, cured, etc.), but I want it to be good quality and delicious. We live in the East Bay, but he works in SF, so that's fine too.

  1. Found this on the menu at The Terrace at the Ritz-Carlton.
    Warm Ham and Brie Sandwich Caramelized onion, dijon mustard, with fruit salad.

    1. This is a more casual FiDi lunch option since you say he works in SF, but I noticed at Sellers Market they've got a turkey & brie with cranberry relish and a black forest ham & fig jam, I'm sure they'd do a mash up of those two sandwiches and warm it up for him. There are SMs at 721/525/388 Market

      1. Perhaps this isn't very Chowhound-y, but I've recently been loving the sandwiches at Whole Foods (Oakland Bay Place location). In their prepared foods area, they have tons of options for a "build your own sandwich" sort of unusual number of choices under bread, cheese, veggies, spreads (up to 3), and meats. Brie and ham are definitely among the options.

          Thanks for the suggestions so far. I do have one silly question: is there a specific "kind" of ham, or do you just order ham?

        2. Mo Joe Cafe in Berkeley has a KILLER bacon (I think they use pancetta) and brie sandwich. It's served with a well-done, but typical cafe salad. They serve great coffee and Mighty Leaf teas, too.
