Melt with You

A Brand-New Shrine to Grilled Cheese

Grilled cheese.

We know, you’re a fan. You’ve chased food trucks for it. Risked tongue burns while consuming it. Gone through dozens of toaster bags making it.

And now, you’ll go to a dedicated spot to bask in the melted glory of it...

Say hello to MLT, the vowel-averse canteen devoted to griddled sandwiches, Philly cheesesteaks and fried-chicken-enhanced waffles, now open in South Beach.

Basically, this handsome quick-serve joint on Washington Avenue (open for lunch and dinner now; late-night hours to come) highlights everything you promised you’d eat in moderation this year. Maple gravy. Short-rib biscuits. That sort of thing...

Picture it: it’s the dark of night, and you find yourself craving—with the fiery passion of a thousand scorching suns—the Half Baked, an astounding culinary trifecta of bacon, Cheez Whiz and fries, all on sourdough. Or the Mac Daddy Philly combining the classic cheesesteak with truffle mac and cheese.

And for dessert, Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding—four words that, throughout history, have never failed to solve the world’s problems.

The grilled cheese doesn’t hurt, either.
