Hog Island Oyster Co. Grilled Cheese Sandwich

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)
