Favorites: Can Can’s croque madame

You can’t throw a pierre1 in Paris without hitting a croque monsiuer. The ubiquitous sandwich appears on the menus of takeout joints and upscale brasseries alike. You can find Richmond’s own version at Can Can Brasserie, which also adds the croque madame ($11). How do you make a grilled ham and gruyere sandwich, covered in creamy béchamel sauce, even more comforting and rich? You place a fried egg on top. Cut through the yolk and let it soak into Can Can’s delicious house-made bread.
