4. L'Hermitage Catering

The go-to has long been the bacon grilled cheese. Yes, much of our population believes bacon makes everything better. We won't disagree, but we think the same goes for avocado. And this Fort Lauderdale lunch spot and catering company fortunately feels the same way. Chef/owner Martha Clemons makes a superb creamy sammie filled with melted Muenster and cheddar, homemade blue cheese dressing, and nature's creamiest fruit, avocado. We're going to go ahead with the justification that it's healthy -- don't ask questions.

3. New York Grilled Cheese

If it's got its namesake item in its title, it has to be legit -- or extremely audacious. Fortunately, for lactose fans, this place is the real deal. It offers an array of melty, gooey sandwiches for every cheesy palate. From carb heaven, with mac and cheese between two slices of bread (the $8.50 Manhattan Grilled Mac 'n Cheese), to steak-house-inspired, with American, horseradish chive cheddar, caramelized onions, beef brisket, and aioli (the $9.75 Meat Packing District Melt), this place has it all. We, however, like to keep it classy. The Soho Sweet Cheeses ($8.50) with Brie, caramelized onions, bacon, and berry marmalade on oatmeal wheat bread is as sophisticated as the neighborhood for which it is named -- if such a thing exists in a grilled cheese.
