If one ends up at Bouchon Bakery at the Time Warner Center, do yourself a favor and order the grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup. Don’t even look at the menu – there is no need. The grilled cheese is undeniably the best thing on it. In fact, it is just about the best grilled cheese sandwich (with the perfect cup of tomato soup “dip”) that you will ever find.

And I instantly regret my decision.

The quiche, in contrast, is not all that Donatella described.
First of all, call me crazy, but I don’t consider quiche a “guilty pleasure.” McDonald’s is a guilty pleasure. A Crumbs cupcake. A 16-ounce margarita.
Not a quiche.

Additionally, the salad (more like leafy greens) that comes with the quiche is bland at best, and way too acidic at worst.
The quiche is not good.

And I will never order anything but the grilled cheese at Bouchon Bakery again.
