ISO Croque Monsuier/Madame

loreeLB Jul 13, 2010 01:35 PM

Saw this on a food show and now am craving it! I don't mind making it but wondering if there is any place in the LA/LB/OC area that serves it and does it justice?

    The one at Comme Ca is one of my favorite brunch dishes ever. I get the croque madmae because I love dipping bites in the runny egg yoke.

        Bouchon's croques used to be the gold standard for me but now I give the slight edge to the ones at Church & State - both served with great fries.

            Thought the Croque Madame I had at Amandine was excellent.

              Ratata, on Westwood Blvd., just south of Santa Monica (near Starbucks & Philly West)

                The one at Campanile's grilled cheese nights (Thursday) is usually a good bet.

                  Hi loreeLB!

                  In LA, Monsieur Marcel at the Farmer’s Market offers scrumptious croque monsieurs/madames, however, I prefer his signature croque marcel made with smoked turkey.

                  Monsieur Marcel
                  6333 W. 3rd Street
                  Los Angeles, CA 90036
                  (323) 939-7792

                  In OC, Anepalco’s makes a slightly non-traditional, yet delicious croque monsieur along with a host of other wondrous bites.

                  415 S Main St
                  Orange, CA 92868
                  (714) 771-2333

                  Saving the best for last - when you want something over-the-top, indulge yourself in Marche Moderne’s croque monsieur a cheval made with ham, aged gruyere, white truffle and topped with chanterelles and a quail’s egg. Utterly divine.

                  Marche Moderne
                  3333 Bristol Street, #3001
                  Costa Mesa, CA 92626
                  (714) 434-7900

                  Bon Appetit!

                    It's not at all traditional, but I absolutely love the Croque Madame at Hatfields. Hamachi tuna, brioche, and quail's egg - insanely delicious.
