Harlem’s Best Grilled Cheese Samich In NYC

harlempublicGothamist reports on their favorite place in Harlem to get their favorite cheese sandwich on! With swimsuit season coming to a close we can now turn our attention to bulking up for the winter with delicious comfort foods, namely loads of dairy and carbs. There are infinite ways to enjoy cheese, but melted between two slices of buttered bread may be our favorite, and there are seemingly infinite ways to enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich in this town.

Here’s their favorite grilled cheese spot in Harlem:

Harlem Public: This Harlem spot specializes in stick-to-your-ribs pub grub like deep fried avocado fries, peanut butter-topped burgers and hearty grilled cheese sandwiches just begging for a cold pint to wash them down. Their regular Grilled Cheese ($8.95) comes packed with New York State cheddar and jalapeno jack cheeses on two thick slabs of buttered Grandaisy sourdough bread, plus bacon for a few extra pennies. This would be decadent enough, but the crowd-pleasing bar takes it to the next level with their Loaded Grilled Cheese ($11.95), a sick stack of cheeses, bacon, guacamole and…Doritos. It is ridiculous, it is delicious, and comes with a 100% nap guarantee.

Harlem Public is located at 3612 Broadway between 148th and 149th Streets, (212) 939-9404; website.
