Number 72: Grilled cheese and tomato soup at The Roosevelt


Who goes out for a grilled cheese and tomato soup when this has got to be one of the easiest things to make at home?

Me.

That's because The Roosevelt makes a mean grilled cheese panini-style, with a thick ooze of melted cheese on the inside and a buttery, crispy crust that holds up to repeated dunkings in the homemade San Marzano tomato soup. Really, it's the soup that takes it all to the next level, because there's nothing in a Campbell's soup can that compared to this savory ambrosia.

Not to mention, owner Matt Pool always has downtown's best selection of interesting, delicious, and sometimes slightly obscure craft beers on tap.
