Seriously, who doesn't love a grilled cheese?


National Grilled Cheese Day

Indulge Your Nostalgia at C’est Cheese


It’s not difficult to make the case that a grilled-cheese sandwich is the perfect food. That crunchy, creamy combo of bread and cheese is deliciously evocative of childhood yet remains appetizing into grownup-dom, as opposed to, say, Trix. And April is the perfect time to indulge your nostalgia: It’s grilled-cheese month. (Yes, that’s a thing.) And, as it happens, Friday, April 12, is National Grilled Cheese Day (yes, that’s a thing). To celebrate — and only a serious scrooge would opt not to mark this occasion — C’est Cheese is channeling the collective maternal unconscious and kicking down a free cup of tomato soup with every grilled-cheese sammie. Of course their offerings are decidedly more sophisticated than your standard Mom Special (no offense, mom!); available in eight different preparations, their grilled cheeses include something for everyone. The signature grilled cheese uses a blend of Scharfe Maxx, four-year-aged cheddar, and mozzarella; the BLTGC kicks it up with bacon, tomato marmalade, and arugula; the Goat is a blend of raw goat cheddar and goat gouda with Spanish chorizo, piquillo peppers, and arugula; the Joe is enhanced with olive spread; and the Truffled GC features a mix of Il Boschetto al Tartufo and mozzarella. See you at the counter!
