A week and a half ago Nick took me to a fun little pop up tasting for what else, but one of my absolute favorites: GRILLED CHEESE! I couldn’t believe my ears when he told me he had scored a freebie entry for himself as well as yours truly. Thanks Time Out New York!!! That was such a treat!! Tickets were $25 for all you can handle tastings as well as drinks (for 1 hour of course!). We showed up to our assigned time slot and grabbed ourselves a beer from the local craft brewery, Sixpoint, while we waited to be herded in. There were 7 different stations to choose and taste from (in no particular order: Little Muenster, Lucy’s Whey, Big Daddy’s, Tartinery, Casellula, Murray’s Melts, and The Melt Shop) and then we had to place our votes at the end of the hour. We made our way through the 7 stations, judged then picked our favorites. Our top 3 were: Lucy’s Whey, Little Muenster and Big Daddy’s. In the end we both voted for Big Daddy’s. Who can say no to the heart stopping macaroni & cheese with bacon and truffle oil?? We don’t actually know who won the contest or what they won, but we sure had a good time. It was a grilled cheese lover’s dream!
