Best Sassy Grilled Cheese: Em’s Sourdough

“Not Your Mama’s” grilled cheese at Em’s Sourdough in Findlay Market combines garlic cheddar and sharp cheddar cheeses on Em’s signature sourdough bread, grilled on a panini press. You can add tomato and avocado or a side of housemade soup for a few dollars more. Or sub in honey-sweetened whole wheat bread as your base. When grilled, the seeds and nuts in the bread add a welcome element of crunch. During the workweek you can also get Em’s delivered, if you’re downtown, via CityBeat’s favorite bike delivery team, 53t Courier (, so you can eat your sassy grilled cheese without ever leaving your desk.
