This elegant artisan cheese bar lovingly sources top-of-the-line American-made cheeses, local wine and beer and crafts its own charcuterie in-house. Its pressed sandwiches, served on hearty country levain, feature exemplary pairings like the California Gold: the hard cow’s milk cheese San Joaquin Gold, creamy chevre, La Quercia prosciutto and Dalmatia fig preserves.
Of all the nostalgic foods we indulged in as children, grilled cheese sandwiches are perhaps the most iconic: buttery, melty and ideal dipped into a bowl of tomato soup, they’re always a memorable treat. Luckily, grilled cheeses still please an adult palate, too—particularly when they’re gussied up with top-tier ingredients. They’re served all over the place—at the best diners in America, at the best food trucks in America and at all those restaurants serving the best brunch in America—but it’s not always easy to find a truly great one. Luckily, we’ve done the sleuthing for you: from Miami to Austin and everywhere in between, these eateries serve the best grilled cheese in America.
