After the show, we had a late dinner at Thomas Keller’s restaurant, Bouchon.
From Dining in France:
Next up was the Croque Madame… a toasted ham & cheese sandwich on brioche with a fried egg and mornay sauce; served with french fries. I know, you may be wondering why I ordered a ham & cheese sandwich of all things. Initially our plan was to dine at Bouchon for brunch where I would have ordered the Croque Madame. But since we were dining for dinner, I was surprised that the Croque Madame was also offered. So I ordered it based on the many raves I’ve heard of the dish. And just as I expected, it did not disappoint. It truly was the epitome of all ham & cheese sandwiches. The richness of the buttery brioche with the egg and mornay made this quite a special dish.
