On one of the few rainy evenings in LA, and after enjoying a Rooftop Cinema Club movie in the drizzle, I walked down Hollywood Blvd. and spotted The Melt. With grilled cheese I am usually a traditionalist - I  don't think it needs to be too fancy, but should just be done well in a classic way. While the menu is not huge at The Melt, they have enough variety to satisfy and surprise you.

I ordered the Italian Job, which contains mushrooms, fontina and provolone cheese on a spicy garlic bread. The sandwich was crispy and well toasted on the outside, while savory and gooey on the inside. it was not greasy. The ratio of bread to cheese to fillings was perfect. While it was very well seasoned, the spice or garlic did not over power. The bread was baked fresh. I loved the small slice of pickle on the side, breaking down the creaminess.

It held up well for about 20 minutes before I ate it. My friend reheated the Classic version and it got super toasty and perfect, reheated on a pan on the stove top. The service was very friendly and pleasant. It was a solid choice.
