Best Of 2014: French

Best Of 2014: Soup

As always when you vote for La Baguette, we have to point out that there are three separately owned locations in town, and that each marches to the beat of its own wooden spoon against a stock pot. Next point: Though you can find seasonal soups like gazpacho and Vichyssoise at these places, we know you actually voted for the French onion soup, with gooey melted cheese and spongy croutons capping beef broth loaded with opaque onions. And finally: As good as that is, remember that French food encompasses much more than what can fit in a single bowl, and at La Baguette you'll find buttery pastries, intricately constructed sandwiches and more that are award-worthy. — Matthew Schniper

Bites 2013: Croque Madame

The Monte Cristo has nothing on the Croque Madame. It's the most gourmet ham-and-cheese you'll probably ever eat. Thick, buttered, grilled bread lathered in Dijon mustard holds pan-warmed ham and melted Swiss cheese, plus a cap of gooey Gruyère. Then comes the fried egg, ready to ooze its yolk downward, eventually to merge with an underlying puddle of Béchamel sauce. It's Parisian comfort food, perfected. ($9.95)

Price: $$
