No matter how old you are, you’re never too old for that classic comfort food – a grilled cheese sandwich. That’s why on April 12, we’ll celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day, when we all have an excuse to indulge in this ooey-gooey favorite in every corner of Washington, DC.
This National Cheese Day, take a break from clean eating and instead, order a grilled cheese sandwich from one of the many cafes and shops offering the delicacy in Washington DC. Either walk there from your RESA apartment to burn off the calories, or hop in the car for a quick drive in the city!
GCDC Grilled Cheese Bar, located at 1730 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC which is just a short 14-minute drive from your RESA apartment, is a contemporary eatery dishing up grilled cheese sandwiches plus fried fare and charcuterie.
The idea to create GCDC Grilled Cheese Bar came to founder Bruce Klores many years ago while he was eating a great grilled cheese sandwich when walking the streets of San Francisco. They opened in 2014 to an amazing reception, and since then, customers have been flocking here for the café’s creative takes on grilled cheese sandwiches, as well as the ability to design their own.
Say Cheese!, located at 1132 29th St NW, Washington, DC which will take you 14 minutes to get to by car, offers a thoughtful all day breakfast selection, specialty sandwiches, soups, salads, tea, coffee, delicious smoothies, shakes and fresh baked goods — all with a cheese twist.
Everything here is handmade from scratch daily in small batches right in the kitchen with the freshest, hand-picked ingredients available. Plus, it’s all served in historic, quintessential Georgetown and tucked away on a quiet street, allowing you a respite from the day at Say Cheese!
