    If you like cheese then I can't find a reason for you not to love this place. Check out all three levels.

    The grilled cheese sandwich and mac & cheese were good but I've eaten better and the portions are small

    Many restaurants have open kitchen now but where can you watch people make cheese? Fresh cheese and wine please!

    The mac and cheese has a lot of flavor and none of that fake easymac ish. I would get the small and get a salad to balance the heaviness. Or just eat the large like I did because what's health?

    Patty melt is awesome but make sure you ask for it medium - mine was tough.

    Happy Hour - get the Mac and Cheese. House wines are excellent and well worth the $6.

    OMG so much cheese!

    My overall experience was great. Tho for me a grilled cheese is buttered and put on an actual flat top grill, this is not the case here. Its more of a panini press here which for me isnt as good

    Unbelievable cheesery (is that a word?). Love everything about this place, great lunch. Looks like there's limited seating so expect to take-out.

    Mac & Cheese!!! Crab M&C is excellent as are the meatballs. Insider tip: add the sauce from your meatballs to the crab mac & cheese.

    The mac and cheese IS great but it's too mushy to be the "world's best." Plus, it comes from a big soup pot so there's no crustyness.

    Jeff Petriello · July 25, 2014
  • Gordon M.

    Check out the bar downstairs and try the balsamic mushroom fennel mac and cheese.

    Caprese grilled cheese and tomato soup on a cold day is a must!

    Cute space with nice staff... but in terms of cheese selections and varieties, Murray's is better but for sandwiches, come here

    I used to be skeptical of the grilled cheese & tomato soup lunch. Now, thanks to Beecher's, I'm all about it. (Make sure you get the smoked turkey sandwich!)

    Brian Watson · September 13, 2013

    Grab a hunk of cheese (you can't go wrong with the 4-Year Flagship), then head up B'way to Maison Kayser for a baguette (among NYC's best). Go make sandwiches in Madison Square Park. #FLATIRONMASHUP
