I love cheese. Cheese of all kinds, really. Cheese makes me happy and sometimes when I'm blue I need some quesotherapy...
For me nothing helps a bad morning like a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. And my grilled cheese in midtown of late is the Grilled Gruyere with Carmelized Onions on Rye from 'wichcraft.
Oh glorious sandwich, how I do love you! Mmmm, melty, salty, nutty Gruyere with a good helping of carmelized onions on nicely grilled slices of rye. That's my idea of heaven. It's like a umami laden flavor bomb (if you buy the whole there is a magical 5th taste in addition to salty, sweet, bitter, and sour). Always perks me up.
This sandwich is one of the cheaper items on 'wichcraft's menu, but if you like a larger lunch you're going to need to augment which makes it less of a good deal. (That and I swear that 'wichcraft raised the price on this sandwich from $5.50 to it's current price of $5.95--can anyone back me up on this?) But, if you go to the Rock Center branch and you show your Rock Center ID (or tell them that you work in the building) they'll give you 10% off. Hey, every little bit helps! And for you folks that work late(r), the Rock Center branch is open until 8pm Monday through Friday.
