The Best Grilled Cheese in Manhattan

Every time I head back home to NYC, whether it be for three days or three months, I make at least one trip to the Bouchon Bakery at Columbus Circle. Though after 12:30 PM it can be hard to get seating, the food is well worth the wait. Bouchon constantly changes up the menu, which you would think would be great for someone like me who loves to try new things. For some reason though, whenever I got to Bouchon, I always order the grilled cheese with tomato soup. (Luckily, this item is always on the menu).

Though seemingly simple, Bouchon knows how to make this dish to perfection. They grill Gruyère and Fontina cheese on really good quality white bread until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melting. The soup served alongside is a great complement to the rich but delightful sandwich.

There is no proper way to eat this, but I like taking a bite of my grilled cheese plain, then dipping it in the tomato soup, and then trying the tomato soup on its own. Be sure to make a stop by Bouchon Bakery the next time you are in NYC to try some of the best grilled cheese ever! I will surely be there when I am home.

    I’ve heard of this place, but I’ve never been. I got to stop by there sometime when I get an available moment. Great post 🙂

      Bouchon Bakery is really good. Everything I’ve had there is delicious, but I just can’t stop ordering the grilled cheese!
