Hog Island Oyster Co. Grilled Cheese Sandwich

jen maiser | Mar 28, 200411:35 AM

Who would have thought that Hog Island Oyster Co. in the Ferry Building makes an excellent grilled cheese sandwich?

On the menu it is billed as:

"Rustic grilled cheese sandwich with Fromage Blanc, Mezzo Secoo & Cave Aged Gruyere served with mixed greens" ($9).

The bread was Acme's ciabatta. Grilled crisp on the outside and panini-like. The cheese was all from Cowgirl. I don't remember seeing greens on the plate, but J may have eaten them. There was a cup of olives.

This was a perfect accompaniment to a platter of oysters. My biggest gripe with grilled cheese is when it is over-fancified. This sandwich just let the cheese and the bread speak for themselves. Yum. Another great meal at Hog Island.

BTW, the menu changed yesterday. The main changes I notice are the grilled cheese sandwich, a new salad, and deals if you buy 2 dozen oysters. I think there's also a new cooked oyster dish.

Also, to answer Ruth's question from a while back, here's the list of beers they serve:

Scrimshaw Pilsner
Acme Red Seal Ale
Blue Star Great American Wheat Beer
Old #38 Stout

(all $3.50)
