Friday, April 12 saw a celebration of all things grilled cheese in San Francisco, where patrons drooled over gooey sandwich concoctions that looked good enough to get a heart attack over. While I wasn't personally in SF for the event, I plan on making quite a few of these dishes, but only if I have some tomato soup ready to go as well.
There's something magical about a perfectly grilled cheese sandwich that can instantly whisk even the most curmudgeonly of eaters back to his or her childhood.
But at the same time, when a restaurant puts a grilled cheese on the menu, it can't help but conjure the question, "Why should I shell out my hard-earned cash for something I could make at home when I was five?"
This Friday is National Grilled Cheese Day, and we're using the opportunity to answer that most curmudgeonly of questions by pointing you, the hungry members of the lactose-loving public, to the best restaurants in San Francisco for grilled cheese.
