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.

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

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.
