$7.25 » This sweet-savory sandwich straddles the line between classic and retro, making it pretty irresistible. Normandie's version spares us from soggy French toast in favor of lightly toasted slices of a brioche-type loaf. Served hot, the bread surrounds melting cheese, ham and raspberry jam. As odd as it might sound to Monte Cristo novices, the combination works. You don't find these sandwiches often on menus, but Normandie's incarnation with a side of sweet potato fries make a nice change of pace.
