Gooey melted cheese sandwiched in between savory grilled bread.  It takes me back to being a little kid!  But grilled cheese isn’t just for kids, right?  Right!


I had the pleasure of visiting a Cleveland establishment that believes that too!  Melt Bar & Grilled serves up grilled cheeses for an adult pallet palate.  Purest, don’t worry they’ve got traditional grilled cheese too.  On their website they say their goal is: “To provide gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and as many beers as possible in a cool and comfortable environment.”  Well that sure sounds good to me!



I started with a beer: Victory Summer Love.  Confession: I’ve recently (ok for the past 2 years) been having a somewhat love affair with IPA’s.  I love them so much it’s hard for me to drink much else.  But I really liked this Ale and I’d definitely order it again!


It was hard to choose my meal with so many choices of melts on the menu.  I ended up building my own melt with: sharp cheddar, tomato, avocado, and smoked turkey.

I’m not going to lie, I devoured my sandwich… all of it.  Yup, all of it.


I wasn’t as huge of a fan of the fries, which was fine with me since I was eating a huge grilled cheese.  My melt also came with a crunchy sweet slaw that was pretty good- and some pickles to top it all off.



Least to say, I was pretty happy after my first meal at Melt. 🙂


Question: How would you build your own grilled cheese?

    I would build my grilled cheese with toasted crusty farmer’s bread, a mild garlic basil butter spread, and emmental…and IPA! Also, I would build it in Cincinnati where I could enjoy it with people who appreciate a refined palate such as mine.

    I’m a traditionalist, I think, when it comes to grilled cheese… I’m a sourdough/sharp cheddar w/ a creamy tomato soup for dipping! Though, I could eat pretty much any bread/cheese combination you put in front of me 🙂
