The Daily Melt just opened up it’s second spot in Midtown right next to the Five Guys. Their first restaurant is in Coral Springs where I originally planned to hit them up til I found out about this fella. I had taken a look at the menu online so I knew which 2 I wanted to eat. I added a Cup of Broccoli & Cheese Soup. The Soups are available in either Cup or Shot, which is great for those just wanting a little something extra. The Broccoli & Cheese Soup was a run of the mill soup that can be found at a Subway or Quiznos type establishment.

Both of my Grilled Cheeses (Bacon Melt & Coney Island Melt) were on Sourdough Bread but I could have gone the Wheat route. It wouldn’t seem right to have a Grilled Cheese on Wheat Bread anyway. The Bacon Melt had Cheddar, Crispy Bacon, Spinach, Roma Tomato with a side of ruffled pickles. The Coney Island Melt was a Hot Dog Grilled Cheese with American Cheese, Chili, Onions and Yellow Mustard (and those pickles on the side too). Neither of these two did it for me. The Daily Melt is claiming to be “The Ultimate Grilled Cheese” but these are the type of sandwiches that I could recreate at my home with better ingredients and results.

My friend who was with me ate the Meatball & BBQ Pulled Pork Melts. His words after the first bite of the BBQ Pulled Pork Melt was that this was “Mall Food”. Ironically enough, the first Daily Melt location is in Coral Springs Mall so that makes sense. If you do check it out, please let me know your thoughts below in the comments area.

There are 2 things that set Elevation Burger apart from the majority of burger joints. The beef is ground fresh at each location (it’s 100% grass fed organic free range beef) and the fries are cooked in olive oil. So what does that mean for you? Taste. The burgers are cooked on a griddle and are available in either Hamburger, The Elevation Burger (double patty) or Vertigo Burger (build a 3 to 10 patty sandwich). You can of course add “Real Cheddar Cheese” to the burgers as well.
There’s also a Veggie option of either a Fire Roasted Burger or a “Tastes Like Veggies” (for Vegans) Burger. The Half The Guilt Burger which is one regular patty and one veggie patty of your choice is available too. How about their Elevation Salad, Grilled Cheese or having your burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun? If you’re looking to eat Burgers but also looking to cut some of the calories then this might be the place for you. And if you’re not, there’s still Real Ice Cream Shakes and Cookies on the menu too.
What did I have?
I ordered the Elevation Cheeseburger with Elevation Sauce. I loved it and thought it had great flavor. The Elevation Sauce is very similar to a Thousand Island Dressing. I personally could have done without it and in subsequent visits have realized Mustard is the way to go here. The patties aren’t large so make plans to possibly get another.
Elevation Fries are fresh cut and it comes through in the taste. I’m sure the fact they’re cooked in Olive Oil helps a little. They were amazing, Yes….Amazing!
The Half The Guilt Burger was good. There I said it, I can admit I liked the taste of the Veggie Patty. The Shakes are made of real Ice Cream using your choice of either Vanilla, Chocolate or Coffee Ice Creams but were nothing special.
And the Cookies, well they’re available in either Small or Large. The only Cookie is a Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan Cookie made with Organic Eggs and Butter. I don’t like Pecans but I overlooked it because these were so rich and just plain good.
When it was all said and done I went back and had another Elevation Cheeseburger (with Grilled Onions) and another order of Fries because sometimes, you have to do what you have to.
