Grilled Cheese–Day One

I like grilled cheese sandwiches. Outside of children’s menus, good grilled cheese sandwiches are far and few between. I was excited to learn that Gather Wine Bar, in the Village of Arroyo Grande, was going to be featuring grilled cheese sandwiches throughout the month of February. Today was the first time I was available to stop in for lunch to grab a sandwich.

The menu consists of a selection of five grilled cheese sandwiches. I’ve decided to order the grilled cheese sandwiches in the order they appear on the menu. The first one up is the Brie and Prosciutto Grilled Sandwich. The sandwich comes with a mild brie cheese, apple slices, dried cherries and mustard.

The dried cherries make a nice pairing with the brie cheese. The bread is nicely toasted to a golden brown color. The cheese is nice and gooey. The prosciutto adds some nice saltiness to the sandwich. A side of chips provides some additional nostalgia from as common childhood sandwich side. I choose the side of BBQ chips, with an additional option of corn chips. For an additional charge one may receive a side salad.

Since it was cold outside I decided to get a side of hot tea. In addition to hot tea Gather Wine Bar has a large selection of wines and Figueroa Mountain Brewery beers on tap.

I’d definitely have the Brie and Prosciutto again. I look forward to trying another sandwich tomorrow.
