Sometimes our real estate agents crave a good grilled cheese sandwich, especially on a cool, rainy day. With National Grilled Cheese Day coming up April 12, we started thinking about how to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich.
Not all grilled cheese is created equal. Our favorite version has slightly toasted golden bread, a good blend of melted cheese, and just enough butter. Of course, everyone has their own version, including many of the great restaurants on Long Island.
In honor of National Grilled Cheese day, here are six Long Island restaurants where you can grab a delicious sandwich.
- MELTology - 1070 Middle Country Rd., Selden, NY 11784
When a basic grilled cheese just won't cut it, stop by MELTology. These grilled cheese sandwiches are on another level. Choose from eight different gourmet sandwiches, including "The Kitchen Cinque," which has parmesan-crusted sourdough, gruyere, American, pepper jack cheese, applewood bacon, and tomato. Check their website for rotating weekly specials, and while you're in the area, cruise on over to these Hauppauge homes for sale just a few miles down the road.
- Murray's Cheese Bar - 28-30 Jackson Ave., Queens, NY 11101
Murray's Cheese Bar is the ideal destination for all cheese lovers, and they make one of the finest grilled cheese in Long Island. Also known as "Murray's Melt," this sandwich has a signature blend of three cheeses and can be topped with bacon or tomato. Grilled cheese always goes great with a nice bowl of tomato soup, which you can add as a side. While you're in town, be sure to check out some of these nearby Sunnyside homes for sale.

Grilled cheese and a beer make for the perfect pair, and you can find both at Brew Cheese.
