MELTing Away the Cold

I finally made it to Melt Shop to try their well-known and well-loved grilled cheeses.  It was so hard to decide which ones to order.  Do I go with a classic style or one of their very creative ones?  Regardless of which we decided, I was pretty confident it was going to be a great meal!

Their Midtown location can be a little tricky to find. It's in a corner down a set of stairs in a plaza at the base of the Citigroup building near the 6/E/M subway entrance.  Because it's just take-away, I'd definitely suggest going to eat in the atrium of the Citi building. There's ample seating and it's a nice to warm up from the cold outside with a warm, comforting lunch like this!

They also have a location in Chelsea.
