Best NYC grilled cheese

Emmmily Oct 3, 2007 05:29 PM

That NYTimes article (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/03/din...
)made me hungry, but LA's a bit out of my range. My local diner does a respectable job, but where in the city can you get a really good grilled cheese?

    'wichcraft has a good one made with cheddar, bacon, and apple slices on pumpernickel.

        Sandwich Planet does a mean grilled cheese. Even better when it's done on stirato.

            I actally had a really bad grilled cheese from Sandwich Planet recently, and I was shocked because I usually love everything I get from there. The bread was bone dry, and it seems that it had been pressed instead of grilled. Maybe it was an off day.

              What's on the Bouchon Bakery grilled cheese? I love Bouchon and I love grilled cheese, so I just might have to try this sandwich this week!

                It's just a grilled cheese sandwish, I believe they use gruyere. They serve it with a tomato soup, it's quite tasty.

                B&H Vegetarian, in the East Village on 2nd ave, has a memorable grilled cheese. They use thick, buttery homemade bread, and then use plenty of butter and cheese. It's good with a cup of their soup.

                  Amys bread grilled cheese is so heavenly. Havent had it in a while, they closed the Amys bread I used to go to but im assuming the other locations, chelsea market, are still open- but she makes a grilled cheese on amazing bread with.... let me see.. chedder, some sort of tomato/ chile spread that includes red onion and cilantro...its sort of tangy and sort of sweet and sort of cheesy, im telling you it is so good and perfect for a day like today. Try one today!

                  I second 'wichcraft. The one in Soho at least has a grilled cheddar sandwich with pears on cranberry-walnut bread.
