The month of April, already admired for its warmer temperatures and promising showers, also plays host to a very notable month long holiday—National Grilled Cheese Month. And whether you’re a fan of white American, brie, or even the traditional cheddar, you’ll be amazed by the many ways restaurants across NYC are dishing out in order to provide customers with the best grilled cheese sandwiches possible. Here are our Top restaurants which are serving up grilled cheese spin-offs for you to visit and enjoy this month:
Featuring a seasonal menu, this restaurant should definitely be the first stop on your sandwich adventure. The menu is almost completely made up of grilled cheese options, such as a breakfast sandwich of crispy pork belly, egg, Gouda, gruyere, and kewpie mayonnaise on a brioche bun or a classic Muenster and white American on peasant bread for lunch. But be warned, not all of the options are this standard. Those who love the taste of blue cheese can sink their teeth into the pear puree, stilton, toasted walnut, and sliced pear sandwich, or grab a protein booster and try a sharp white cheddar, avocado mash, lemon, and herbed kewpie mayo on peasant bread. With so many other options, there’s an opportunity for a person with any taste to find something to love, so bring your friends and take a trip downtown!
Winter 2014 was a brutal one. Luckily we had these magnificent new spots to warm our souls and delight our tastebuds.
3. Moving of Momofuku Ko - Chef/owner David Chang of the Momofuku restaurants has been all over social media lately about his plans for a new Momofuku Ko between Bowery and Second Avenue. The menu, concept, and Executive Chef (Sean Gray) will remain the same, but a movement like this will allow for more tables and even a waiting area to be added to the restaurant. Because of how influential and popular Ko has been since its opening, this is nothing but good news for foodies everywhere who might not have been able to get a seat at the currently smaller restaurant. Plans are set to be completed by the end of the year, meaning that we can only speculate that more information will be released in the coming seasons. Moving on to bigger and better things, and taking us along for the ride, as well! Thanks, David Chang! __________________________________________________________________________________________
