the earl’s challenge: #13 — croque monsieur [at “Bar Boulud”]

8 Jul

Bar Boulud

much like chef keller’s tuna tartine, chef daniel boulud’s croque monsieur is basically a fancy-pants upgrade of a classic ‘wich, in this case, the ham-and-cheese. rich cheese, smooth bechamel, and distinct ham flavors meld seamlessly in a decadently gooey ensemble. not as aggressively salty as the mark’s, and not as sloppy as breslin’s; refined, composed, restrained, but bursting with flavor; french.
