Best Grilled Cheese in the U.S.

Slide 5 of 23

Beecher's Handmade Cheese, Seattle and New York City

This Pike Place Market fixture just expanded to New York with a new boutique and production facility. Each location grills its signature Flagship cheese—a slightly nutty blend of cheddar and Gruyère cultures—with fillings like tomato and basil. Each location also uses local bread: In Seattle, it's from Grand Central Bakery; Harlem nonprofit Hot Bread Kitchen provides excellent loaves in NYC.
