When Adam Goetz moved his restaurant operation from Allen Street to Hertel Avenue last year and opened Craving (1472 Hertel Ave.), he changed more than a ZIP code. He changed the style of the restaurant, from focusing on tiny, deconstructed dishes to an eclectic menu punctuated with heartier choices.

One of the sandwiches he started with is still on the menu: the croque madame, which is $9.50. Despite the fancy French name, "It's basically the most incredible grilled cheese with ham that you can get," Goetz said.

Simple in its execution, work on the sandwich actually begins at least a week before the customer orders it. That's because the restaurant cures its own hams, using pork from T-Meadow Farm in Lockport. "We cure it for about a week, depending on the size, and put a real light smoke on it," he said.

Craving also bakes its own sourdough bread, which turns up in the croque madame and other sandwiches.

To make it, two slices of house-made sourdough bread are laid out on the griddle. Each is spread with whole-grain mustard aioli, then covered with slices of Gruyere cheese.

The cook layers on thinly sliced ham, then closes the sandwich and grills it on the flattop Discount Newport 100S Cigarettes, until it's golden brown and oozy Online Newport Cigarette Store, like any other toasted cheese sandwich.

"We sell a ton of them," Goetz said. "To me, there's nothing better than a sandwich that you have to eat with a knife and fork. It's probably our second-biggest seller at lunch, after our grilled asparagus salad, which is so healthy."
