Grilled Cheese Pandemonium Likely at City's Newest Eatery

The Grilled Cheese Truck

Grilled cheese is going to drive people nuts at the City's newest restaurant.


The countdown to The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen's opening day has officially ended, friends.

Starting at 11 a.m. Friday you can wrap your hands around its butter-slathered, cheese-cradling, Pinkie's Bakery bread slices. And take a bite. Now let's take a moment to relive the journey.

Much-celebrated mistress of grilled cheese, Heidi Gibson, and partner Nate Pollack have completed the redesign of an old tobacco warehouse, endured a grueling video challenge, weathered seven stormy Grilled Cheese Invitationals and subjected themselves to the Eater photog, all in the name of bringing you what may be the hippest grilled cheese in town.

Early reports much appreciated in the comments or straight to Eater HQ.
