|Fireworks: 3 "g's" Grilled Cheese Sandwich|
As readers know, Fireworks is one of my favorite new neighborhood restaurants this year, owing to the fabulous wood-fired pizzas, rotating 30 plus tap beer selection, and consistently friendly, engaged, efficient service. On this past, rainy Sunday, my fondness for the restaurant grew even more thanks to their 3 g's grilled cheese.
Craving comfort food on a raw Sunday afternoon, B and I originally thought of hitting Tallulah, which used to have a grilled cheese/tomato soup combo on their brunch menu. Alas, this is no longer the case. So walking by Fireworks we were happy to see that they do offer a grilled cheese sandwich. We ducked out of the rain and went in to give it a whirl.
Fireworks 3g's grilled cheese sandwich is an utter indulgence, perfect for a cold day. It oozes with smoked gouda, goat, and gruyere cheeses. The buttery toasted bread provides the perfect vehicle for this triad of cheeses. And the tomato jam has just enough acidity to cut the sweetness. The accompanying side of housemade potato crisps are addictive, but the sandwich is more than an ample lunch in and of itself.
Fireworks also offers a tomato soup -- wouldn't it be great if they started a soup and half sandwich combo? Hint, hint.
Until then, when I am seeking the gooey comfort of a grilled cheese, I will be back for this $7 delight.
