Bite Into Gooey Goodness as These Hotels Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Month
Yes, ladies and gentlemen — April is National Grilled Cheese Month (who’s coming up with this stuff?).
Some hotels have embraced the concept as a means to reinvent this American classic, some even going so far as to create over-the-top versions of what’s, already, a delectable comfort food.
The Seagate Hotel & Spa, for instance, is celebrating the month by offering a new specialty grilled cheese available at the hotel’s Beach Club. Are you ready for it? The Lobster & Pork Belly Pimento Grilled Cheese Sandwich, created by Chef Chris Schaefer, features pickled green tomato on Texas toast.
Executive Chef Gabriel Ask of Parq Bar at Montage Beverly Hills serves up a more traditional Brioche and Aged English Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and kids staying at Gramercy Park Hotel can try their own version with brioche by having an American or Gruyere on Brioche Grilled Cheese Sandwich with French Fries from the Room Service menu.
And then there’s the Grilled Mac ‘n Cheese at Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa, created by Sous Chef Chris Salazar, which combines homemade mac ‘n cheese, ham, grilled balsamic tomato and guacamole on grilled sourdough bread.
See what Loews Hotels are doing for National Grilled Cheese Month after the break!
Loews Hotels and Resorts went so far as to challenge each hotel chef to create their own version of this classic comfort food to serve throughout April. While some sandwiches are inspired by regional fare – such as the buffalo mozzarella and heirloom tomato-filled Suzie’s Melt at Loews Coronado Bay which highlights a new partnership with a local organic farm, and the artisanal Vermont Tarentaise Back Bay Slammer on rye at Loews Boston – others are just plain drool-worthy like the Pan-grilled Sourdough, Smoked Cheddar and Fontina with mushrooms and arugula at Loews Ventana Canyon.
It's all so cheesy good.
