supersoft scrambled eggs with ham and cheese and its incredibly flaky 
croissants, we've found plenty of excuses to stop by the restaurant for 
breakfast. But the best reason to be in midtown before work is not on a 
plate--it's in a jar.

Accompanying the meal's house-made breads and brioche is the highly coveted 
jam from Alsatian preserves princess Christine Ferber
http://www.amazon.com/Mes-Confitures-Jellies-Christine-Ferber/dp/0870136291 
. Her small-batch confitures have drawn attention from top French chefs and 
earned her something of a mythical status in her homeland.

For years, jam lovers outside of France had to make the transatlantic trip 
to get a taste. But db Bistro's chef Olivier Muller--a Ferber fanatic and 
fellow Alsace native--called in a favor from his importer friend Olivier 
Wittman and convinced the fourth-generation pastry chef to share her 
inventive combinations with a larger, albeit still limited, audience.

The list of available jams changes frequently, but the latest shipment 
contains favorites like strawberry, apricot, yellow grapefruit and red 
currant.

So have a brioche--or three--and go heavy on the jam. Or, if you can't make 
it to midtown in the morning, you can order your own jars online
