Best NYC grilled cheese

That NYTimes article (
)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?

        1. 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.
