There are few things in life more satisfying than the first bite of something truly delicious. There are few things in life more comforting than when that first bite is full of cheese. Be it cow, sheep, goat, or a mixture of all three, cheese comes in many shapes and sizes, tastes and textures, and makes an appearance on more than its fair share of menus in some form.
National Grilled Cheese Day is Friday, April 12th, and to celebrate, here are our Top Five best cheese picks from around the city.
Marlow & Sons (81 Broadway, Williamsburg, Brooklyn)
Say "cheese" today and head out to one of these top spots for a combination of crunchy, buttery bread and cheesy filling in honor of our favorite classic sandwich: the grilled cheese!

After hearing many good things about this grilled cheese shop in Astoria, we decided to go. It blew our minds and taste buds. Enjoying specialty coffee along with amazing grilled cheese sandwiches and washing it down with craft beer was quite an evening of fulfillment. This labor of love by the power couple, Ben Sandler and Jennifer Lim, is making many patrons infatuated with their product. The diverse cultural spin-offs of an American classic is what separates this shop from the rest. We suggest you try the Arahovas Feta with Ajvar Roasted Red Pepper Spread and dill on Focaccia Bread and the Manchego and Ricotta on Multi Grain Bread with Minted Eggplant and Capers.
