Nom, Nom, Nom: 5 of Our Favorite Hotel Grilled Cheeses

July 19, 2012 at 5:37 PM | by | Comments (2)

If you stay in hotels as much as we do, you start to develop a "regular" dish. You know what we mean. This is your go-to order when you've checked into your hotel and desperately need something to order from room service, even at the in-between hour of 4pm. It's also your standby when you're just popping into a hotel just because.

Now for many of you, this regular dish might be the hotel cheeseburger. For others, it's a club sandwich. But for us, it's the grilled cheese. Here are our 5 favorite hotel grilled cheeses. We understand there are many, many, many more grilled cheeses out there to try, so please, share your grilled cheese recommendations in comments below.

1. Beverly Hills Hotel: The Pink Palace's Fountain Coffee Room, found on the lower level just before the pool, is one of our favorite places on earth. We love the intimate diner-style bar seating and the sinfully delicious menu options like this grilled cheese with bacon. We added avocado too. Just be sure to top it off with a milkshake.

2. The Hotel Bel-Air: Going a little further down Sunset Boulevard will lead you to the BHH's sister hotel, Hotel Bel-Air, which serves a grilled cheese with Gruyere and caramelized onions in their Wolfgang Puck restaurant. We got to try the fancy sandwich last week and we're not sure we can have a grilled cheese withoutcaramelized onions from now on.

3. The Upper House, Hong Kong: Not only was this an incredibly tasty grilled cheese from the hotel's room service which quelled our brief spell of homesickness, we loved how it was served in stackable dumpling serveware, giving the dish some Asian flair.

4. W Downtown New York: Thanks to the recent gourmet comfort food trend, there's probably a restaurant somewhere in Manhattan that only makes grilled cheeses but we liked the W New York Downtown's version which is served up at the hotel's 5th Floor Living Room Lobby, Bar and Terrace. Best of all, this grilled cheese comes with amazing views of the construction at Ground Zero, specifically of the Freedom Tower.

5. Ace Hotel Portland: This funky grilled cheese sandwich was served with aged monterey jack, marinated Anaheim peppers, matchstick french fries and a side of both creme fraiche and sweet harissa. Not only was it a sandwich we wished went on forever, the total bill came to just $10, including a Coke.

Still dreaming of Chambers Grilled Cheese!

About a year and a half ago, after our wedding at Hotel Giraffe we spent our honeymoon night at the Chambers Hotel and ordered grilled cheese, fries and Chocolate chip cookies. We agree that it was one of the most delicious meals we ever ate. We dream of it and perhaps we will have to check in just to order it again. It does not seem to be on the Momofuko má pêche menu.
