Whilst reading this WCPN story on WOSU about how restaurant owners in the Buckeye state are optimistic about their industry in the coming year, we stumbled upon this awesome news: MELT Bar and Grilled is opening a Columbus location this year. MELT is a beloved grilled cheese restaurant that was cooked up in Cleveland and has several locations in northeast Ohio. MELT's gourmet takes on the comfort food classic are admired for their creativity and inexpensiveness. Consider the Smokey Russian, smoked turkey, fresh napa vodka kraut, sautéed onions, smoked Gouda and Russian dressing ($10.50). Also leaving us salivating: the Chorizo and Potato, Mexican sausage and potato hash with cheddar ($9), and the Dude Abides, homemade meatballs, fried mozzarella cheese sticks, marinara, provolone and Romano ($12).
