100 Favorite Dishes: Blue Cheese and Jamon Croquetas at Michy's

79. Blue Cheese and Jamon Croquetas at Michy's

Of course we had to include an item from Michelle Bernstein's flagship establishment, but which Michy's

dish makes our wish list? Lots -- but none more so than these

croquetas, an anchor on the chef's shifting seasonal menus and a

signature starter that is recipe numero uno leading off her Cuisine á

Latina cookbook. Plus the combination of Gorgonzola dolce cheese and

Serrano ham, the crunch of crisp panko bread crumbs, the sweet dip into

fig marmalade -- well, it's just so damn delicious ($8 for half-order,

$11 for full).
