Yves Jadot (Jones Wood Foundry, the Raines Law Room) recruited JWF chef Jason Hicks to open an eatery dedicated to the traditional French sandwich, the croque-monsieur. The shop will serve 16 variations, such as a classic version served with jambon, béchamel sauce and Gruyère on white bread, as well as more adventurous spins, like one layered with salmon and boursain. Order your sandwich and a glass of red or white on the narrow ground floor—once a print shop where Anaïs Nin worked—then ascend the stairs to grab one of the 22 seats on the second level.

Grilled cheese in its many forms and combinations. That's what you will find at La Maison du Croque Monsieur. I've lived across the street from this place for almost two years and only very recently came. The sandwiches are very filling (probably from all the cheese), so half of one was enough for lunch (and the other half for a late afternoon snack). I don't see it on the menu anymore, but when I went, I ordered a sandwich that had mushrooms, cheese and truffle (the perfect combination in my opinion).
