See also

Guys, now that it's finally April 1st, we've officially entered into National Grilled Cheese month (and no, this isn't a cruel April Fool's trick). It's a real holiday, worthy of capitalization of its name and we intend to celebrate it in all its glory.

But in a city with so many awesome, indulgent hotspots like New York, how's a grilled chee-zoid to choose? Well, while we can't make the decision for you, we're here to guide you through the masses towards the most interesting, most delicious and most must-try grilled cheese beauties to put on your April to-eat list, ranging from the classic options like the time-tested cheddar-stuffed grilled cheese and tomato soup combination to an ooey gooey British-inspired breakfast variation.

Some of our favorite options can be found where you'd least expect them, and all are just as decadent as they sound - but wherever (and however) you choose to celebrate such an epic month, happy noshing and cheese-filled wishes to you this April!
