National Grilled Cheese Day is this Friday, but there should be an entire holiday for this one grilled cheese alone. What you are looking at is a Salted Caramel Lobster Grilled Cheese, and it features all of those things in one hand-held food item. We haven't tried it yet, but even though it doesn't feature ramp pesto it seems rather life-changing. Rather like it might make you believe in God. And love. And everything good in the world. And unicorns. And a metabolism that never slows.
The $22 offering comes from Hudson Common (356 West 58th Street) and its full name is the Salted Caramel Angry Lobster Fatty Melt. It’s made of Yancy Farms White Cheddar Curds, Brooklyn Salvatore Smoked Ricotta, 2 Sisters Gouda, Tickler Cheddar, Fromage Blanc, Prairie Breeze Cheddar, and Butter Milk with Red Chili-Chipotle Lobster Salad with a caramel drizzle atop the sandwich to finish it off. This is one of those rare, over-the-top, gluttonous items that is so insane that you cannot feel guilty about indulging in it.
The sandwich (which is so much more than just a sandwich) will only be offered for a limited run of one week, starting this Friday the 12th.
