I remember reading about New York Grilled Cheese Company when it opened up, and then it slipped my mind til’ Rick reminded me about it a week ago. I knew it was located on the same strip mall as Bill’s Filling Station (R.I.P.) and To The Moon Marketplace in Wilton Manors.
I drove around the front and found empty spaces, but I remembered this strip mall had parking spots in the back. And yes, there it was. Ding!
I was by myself, so I behaved by having only one side item and 2 different kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches. The poutine was excellent.
What I loved best about it was when I reached the bottom, the fries were in a pool of gravy marinating. So f’in good I hate them for it.
Each grilled cheese came with a Creamy Tomato Basil Bisque shooter to be used for dunking or, in my case, drinking after each bite. The spoon that came with them was not working out for me.
Grilled Cheese Talk
I ordered the Meat Packing District Melt (American cheese, horseradish chive cheddar cheese, aioli, slow-roasted beef brisket & caramelized onions on country loaf bread) and SoHo Sweet Cheeses (Brie cheese, caramelized onions, bacon & berry marmalade on oatmeal wheat bread).
Your first thoughts upon laying eyes on the pictures are probably that they come on waffles, but it’s an illusion. Apparently, New York Grilled Cheese Company uses waffle makers to toast the sandwiches giving the bread a great added texture.
Usually, I think, the meatier, the better when it comes to sandwiches, but this is one of those cases where it wasn’t. The MPD Melt had a bunch of flavors swirling around, but they didn’t connect with me as much as the SoHo Sweet Cheeses’ did.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d eat another MPD Melt without hesitation, but if comparing the two, the SoHo Sweet Cheeses takes el queso for me. The berry marmalade and just how crunchy the bacon really was stood out on my first bite and continued throughout.
It’s a great…great sandwich. Yes, great.
Two more trips to New York Grilled Cheese Company, and I can work my way through the rest of the menu. I want to try the Bacon Lollipops, the Jalapeño Poppers, the Wall Street Grindr Award Sandwich (but I will not be using the namesake app while doing so), and even the scarily titled Hot Pork Sundae.
