Grilled cheese is all about the grease -- regardless of how much you appreciate the dairy. So a place named after the oily substance should know a thing or two about making a damned good sammie. This place does, obviously. Its triple-decker grilled cheese ($8.95) piles gooey American, Muenster, and queso blanco between country white bread for a handheld meal that'll have you questioning you mother's method within bites.
Life is supposed to be about celebrating. This place offers patrons "A party in your mouth" with every visit -- hey, that's what she said. She is chef/owner Robyn Almodovar, former Hell's Kitchen contestant and New Times' Tastemaker. In addition to a tempting array of gourmet bites and offerings, Almodovar serves some of the best cheesy sandwiches in town. Although she presents several suitable options, we go crazy for her short rib version; it's slow braised in a sweet and tangy barbecue sauce, topped with crispy onions, drizzled with roasted garlic aioli, and smothered in aged cheddar and mozzarella between two slices of multigrain bread. Prepare yourself for a palate explosion.
