Best Grilled Cheese

  • The Commodore

    366 Metropolitan Ave., at Havemeyer St., Williamsburg; 718-218-7632

    The “Adult Cheese” at this hipster-besieged saloon is but one of many recent pimento-cheese additions to New York’s southern-tending foodscape (if a loosely interpretive one). It’s also the best: a housemade spread of roasted poblanos, grated Cheddar, cream cheese, and mayo, topped with a dollop of salsa roja, sandwiched between two lavishly buttered slices of Arnold Country White and cooked until crisp and gooey. Like youth itself, way too good to be wasted on the young.
