3. Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Combo from The Roosevelt
|The Roosevelt's Grilled Cheese|
-- Nothing goes better with a toasty grilled cheese then a nice
warm bowl of tomato soup -- except for a cold beer and a cozy bar. At The Roosevelt, the golden toasted bread with
tangy sharp cheddar is just hot enough to ooze slightly out the sides; dip
it in the velvet soup, and it's perfection on a plate. Just like we would
make at home but better because someone else made it.
2. Halloumi Cheese from Citizen Public House
-- This is far from
your typical sourdough and cheddar grilled cheese, which is why we love
it so much. You won't find another one like it anywhere in town.
Halloumi cheese is a smooth Greek cheese made from a mixture of goat and
sheep's milk with a slightly smokey flavor and a very high melting
point -- which means you can grill it. CPH grills up giant hunks of the
stuff and combines it with a delicious chickpea puree, tahini, ripe
tomatoes, and mixed greens all on top of a soft roll. No bacon needed!
1. Beckett's Original Grilled Cheese from Beckett's Table
|Beckett's OGC |
-- Chef Justin Beckett may be a pork product wiz, but he also makes an outstanding grilled cheese sandwich. Crispy,
cheesy, and totally indulgent, the four cheese blend oozes out
from between buttery, cheese-sprinkled brioche. Toss a couple of pancetta strips on deck for a nice meaty crunch, and combine it with a bowl of
silky roasted red pepper and tomato soup for a decadent comfort food meal.
