At Blue Ribbon Bakery Market, the mustard can upstage the sandwiches. Benjamin68 has no complaints about his smoked duck and honey on toast, but his enduring memory is of amazingly good Dijon mustard, with “intense, vibrant flavor and an incredibly long finish, like a great wine.” Made in France, it’s sold under the Blue Ribbon brand, both the Dijon ($6 a bottle) and a whole-grain variety ($8).
