"Perfect" seems like a weighty adjective to ascribe to a breakfast sandwich, but Dominique Ansel's two-bite-sized breakfast lives up to its tall claims. A compact brioche roll sets the stage for the creamiest chive and shallot steamed eggs, and a dollop of Gruyére. But perhaps the greatest testament to its perfection is that it sells out daily. Get there early if you want in.
