Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day on Thursday with these five grilled cheeses.
Downtown’s top sandwich shop offers something called the Cheese Bomb. It’s a combination of provolone, pepper jack and cheddar with a bit of aioli and some arbol chili for spice.

You won’t find the Unicorn Grilled Cheese on the menu at Gold Spike’s 24-hour in-house eatery. But if you ask nicely, they’ll top two slices of bread with a combination of havarti, provolone, mozzarella, Gouda and rainbow sprinkles, warm them in the oven, grill them together, and top them with more sprinkles. It’s a colorful and delicious treat after a long night of drinking.

The combination of fontina and boursin on thick slices of Texas toast would be, all on its own, a great accompaniment to whatever game you’re watching at this mega sports bar. But Emeril’s team takes it to a new level of decadence by adding large chunks of sweet lobster meat.
Tom’s adds a fruity touch to its combination of fontina, brie and havarti on sourdough with a bit of Croatian fig jam. Or turn it into a Figgy Piggy, which is all of the above plus Applewood smoked bacon.

The operators of this local food truck offer several varieties of grilled cheese at food truck festivals, special events and private parties. They include a pepperoni pizza version as well as one with pickled jalapeños that’s crusted in Flamin’ Hot Cheetos dust.
