National Grilled Cheese Day: 11 Must-Haves in the North East

Grilled cheese is having its week and we were more than happy to hop on the bandwagon and taste test all the cheesy goodness. We did our best to find the top grilled cheese joints from New York State to Philadelphia to Maryland, and everywhere in-between.

Here’s the rundown of our top picks:

New York (Buffalo) – Melting Point
There’s more to the Nickel City than spicy Buffalo wings. Buffalo Melting Point brings heat of its own with a No. 64: Three Cheese Pickled Jalapeno grilled cheese sandwich, made with cheddar, monterey jack, ricotta, and house pickled jalapeños. Or try any of their nine other gourmet grilled cheese concoctions.

New York (Geneva) – Bubble Tea Café 
Visitors to the gateway of the Finger Lakes can get classic comfort with a twist. The Inside Out Grilled Cheese at Bubble Tea Café is piled high with American, cheddar and provolone. The cheese is melted both inside and out for gooey, crunchy, golden perfection.

New York (Bay Shore)  AJ’s Gourmet Grilled Cheese
Comfort foods and guilty pleasures collide as AJ’s takes the classic grilled cheese and turns it on its head. From donut grilled cheese with bacon to Buffalo chicken mac and cheese melts, this Bay Shore, Long Island, grill has the most adventurous menu out of all of our picks.
