I must let you know...I understand grilled cheese lovers. Really, I do. Grilled cheese sammies. The kind your mom made you as an afternoon snack every day in fourth grade. You swore you could eat a grilled cheese every day for the rest of your life. Cheddar, bleu, gruyère...even the occasional goat.
A good GC is oozy, gooey, sticky, stringy, crunchy, creamy, buttery, toasty, and messy. I totally get it. You're among friends here.
Meet Little Muenster, a superfancy grilled cheesery on Stanton and Ludlow. They use ingredients like prosciutto, pancetta, sage brown butter, bone marrow butter (!!) and pear purée. With a hot cup of tomato soup and crispy sweet potato chips on the side, these sammies are out. of. this. WORLD. No lie. You need to get yourself over to LM today. If you do not reside in the tri-state area, you need to move here. (Clarification: "here" means NYC, not Little Muenster. Unless you think they'd let me move in underneath the counter. Is this possible??)
I ordered the asiago, parmesan, and muenster sandwich with butternut squash and sage brown butter. Holy moly. Someone in that kitchen knows what he's doing.
