Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich 

Tin Can Tavern and Grille

As soon as the weather turns cold, our thoughts turn to roaring fires, wool blankets and comfort food: hot soup, hot chocolate and grilled cheese sandwiches. Especially grilled cheese — which, like peanut butter and jelly, is a favorite holdover from childhood. While the concept of the grilled cheese sandwich is simple — uh, take bread, add cheese and heat — creating a sandwich with the perfect balance of melty innards and crisp outsides is difficult. Such careful attention to detail is what sets the Tin Can Tavern's version apart, and above. Thick ribbons of melted American, Swiss and Provel — and we mean thick thick, like stretched-out pulled taffy — ooze from buttery bread that's nice and toasty. If that ain't mouth-watering enough, the Tin Can also puts a warm bowl of creamy tomato bisque alongside this childhood delicacy. Embrace your inner child and dip the corners of your sandwich in the soup. On a winter's day, nothing hits the spot quite like it.
