What's the best grilled cheese?

We can count panini, but its best if you order an item called 'grilled cheese'.

  1. Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop or Burger Heaven...both serve up the "classic" with white bread and American cheese.

    1. im a fan of the 3 cheese with truffle oil panini at 'ino...though i usually get it as part of my quattro panini...very rich.

      also, the grilled cheese at chat and chew that place still in business?

      1. The grilled cheese at 'wichcraft. Gruyere and carmelized onions on rye (i think).

            Third this! Though it is really not the classic combination.

            I like that one too. Also the grilled cheddar with smoked country ham is really great. It comes with pear or quince, depending what's in season.

            One I want to make is Suzanne Goin's grilled cantal with caramelized onion and thyme. She serves that at Lucques in L.A.


          3. i agree, burger heaven does a good job.

            so does jackson hole.

            googies used to, but its no longer in business.....

            1. Hands down the grilled cheese at Green Table in Chelsea Market. Sharp, melty cheddar cheese + fragrant, fresh, thick-sliced multi grain bread + fresh, sweet butter, served with microgreens.
