Best midtown croque monsieur for lunch tomorrow?

This is my son's favourite and I want to take him for lunch. Didier actually has one on his Winterlicious menu (okay - it is a croque madame - with the egg). Any other suggestions?

  1. the best croque madame is at the marriott bloor yorkville at matisse restaurant.....

    1. my personal fav croque madame is at le cigogne. its a very fresh brioche sliced with layers of ham and cheese and has a perfect balance of sweet & salty....and a fried egg on top. be warned that it is not a heavy custard type but with a nice bechamel instead.

      1. my vote is for Pain Perdue on St. Clair

        1. Guess I might be too late.
          The version at Simple isn't traditional, but it's tasty.

          There's also an ok version at Steak Frites, but I like Simple's version better.

          Where did you take your son?

          Simple Bistro

            If you willing to go a little bit north the Trio Restaurant at the Novotel North York (just north of Sheppard on Yonge - direct access from the North York Centre subway stop) has a Croque Madam on their Winterlicious lunch menu. I've eaten there a few times and have always been pleased. Their Summerlicious 2011 menu was lovely so I expect this will be as well.

              Was going to head out to Coquine but because of the snow we ended up at a pizza place within walking distance. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. I am writing them all down for future use.
