Try the Grilled Cheese Sandwich at Half & Half

The grilled cheese sandwich is a comfort food staple -- it's one of Western cuisine's most basic foodstuffs and a mainstay on kiddie menus everywhere. Aside from peanut butter and jelly, the grilled cheese is often your first sandwich.

The grilled cheese being served up at Half & Half (8135 Maryland Avenue, Clayton) is all grown up.

A generous amount of melted cheddar cheese envelops slices of tomato, and it's all smooshed between two thick slices of brioche bread. Paired with Half & Half's homemade potato chips and a pickle, the sandwich is a juxtaposition of tastes and textures: salty and sweet, crunchy and soft. Half & Half's grilled cheese ($7) is a sophisticated and perky interpretation of a sandwich we're all familiar with.
