Grilled cheese is no longer just for picky eight-year-olds. It’s an everyman food. It’s hangover food. It can even be gourmet food. You can customize it any way you want at home, or you can sample it around the city. Here’s where to go for the eight most delicious grilled cheese sandwiches in New York:
1. Clinton Hall
The Doughnut Grilled Cheese sandwich from Clinton Hall is to die for. The bacon habanero doughnut is accompanied by a bowl of creamy tomato soup and the cheese just drips off this crazy concoction in the most mouthwatering of ways!
Address: 90 Washington Street
2. Melt Shop
Melt Shop makes a delicious maple bacon grilled cheese and serves a few other eclectic options for you to expand your palate.
Address: Various locations; Midtown West, Hell’s Kitchen
This place is special because they actually make their own cheese! All their sandwiches use their Flagship cheese, a 15-month aged cow’s milk cheese with a strong, nutty flavor.
Address: 900 Broadway
You might want to wait until the weekend to try their grilled cheese known as “The Hangover Cure.” This masterpiece has sharp white cheddar, egg, avocado and Sriracha sauce.
Address: 242 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn
5. Harlem Public
Their Loaded Grilled Cheese is made with multiple kinds of cheese, bacon, guacamole and Doritos. Loaded indeed!
Address: 3612 Broadway
6. The Commodore
The recipe for the Adult Cheese sandwich is a mystery, which only makes you want to try it more. It’s a delicious combination of creamy, spicy and tomato-y.
Address: 366 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn
7. Morris Truck
There are plenty of grilled cheese options at the Morris Truck, and you can’t go wrong with any of them, but our personal favorite is the BBQ chicken, with cheddar, chicken sausage, pickled onions, and peach bourbon barbecue sauce.
Address: 569 Lincoln Place, Brooklyn
8. Murray’s Cheese Bar
Murray’s has so many cheeses it’s overwhelming, and their sandwiches are to-die-for. You can get a scrumptious breakfast sandwich, or a lunchtime classic: grilled cheese with a bowl of tomato soup.
