English translation: this sandwich is a good idea! The restaurant I was most looking forward to visiting on my recent trip to NYC was Chef Jody Williams’ “gastroteque” Buvette. Hidden among the winding streets of the charming West Village neighborhood, this adorable eatery was the absolute highlight of my trip. In the petit jardin, my husband and I sat on the tiny red French patio furniture, all alone in peace and quite. I ordered the croque-monsieur and a Coke. Delicious! Add this gem to your next trip or make your own!
Croque-Monsieur (recipe adapted from Epicurius)
- 2 t. butter
- 2 t. flour
- 1 c. whole milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- 4 slices of French bread
- 4 oz. ham, thinly sliced
- 4 oz. slice Gruyère cheese
- 1/4 c. grated Gruyère cheese
The béchamel sauce, Gruyère cheese, and rosemary are key to this superb sandwich! Bon appetit!
