I've been in a grilled cheese mood lately. It's easy. It's delicious. It's (usually) not expensive. And it's seemingly everywhere in the city. I'd been hearing and seeing what Little Muenster on the Lower East Side has been offering, and finally wanted to try it out for myself. Mmm, grilled cheeeeeeese.
The menu at Little Muenster has a few variations on grilled cheese; there's everything from plain white American slices with tomato and bacon to Gouda, Muenster and pastrami. For an extra $1, you can be fancy and add bone marrow butter to your sandwich. I went with the Asiago, Parmesan and Muenster, with butternut squash and brown butter sage. The sandwich was decadent with perfectly melted cheeses and a bit of nutty savoriness from the brown butter sage, but I didn't notice any added flavor from the butternut squash. It definitely hit the spot with me, and I would completely consider hitting up Little Muenster again if I'm in the area. For those of you ranking and rating NYC's grilled cheese, this should be a definite stop on the list.
