1. Melt Shop 135 W 50th St, New York, NY 10020 (Midtown West)

Melt Shop reinvents the grilled cheese sandwich in combinations you didn't know you craved. Cheeseheads should stick with the gruyere, havarti, and goat cheese sandwich that gets an extra kick from roasted tomatoes and sourdough bread, while those who like their melted cheese with fried meat should try the fried chicken and pepper jack combo. Every sandwich has a golden brown finish that you could never achieve in your own kitchen, suggesting that sometimes, the classics are best left to the pros.
