Rachel's Kitchen - deluxe grilled cheese

Called ahead today to pick up my first order from Rachel's Kitchen in Bay Village. Arrived to Alon taking the toasted sandwich out of the oven. The menu indicates 3 cheeses, bacon, tomato and chives on brioche. I was thinking a big hunk of heaven as I ate it.

The Globe article linked below, which Rachel showed me when I was there, indicates that the 3 cheeses were cheddar, swiss and meunster. The paper blurb also included a wonderful picture of the sandwich but it just couldn't do it justice. The online version of the article does not include a picture.

Anyway, this thing was easily 2+ inches high - a veritable monster of cheeses, amazingly delicious ripe juicy tomatoes, ample bacon all inside a delicious brioche. Two people could share this sandwich easily. With a bag of salt and pepper kettle chips and a blueberry Izze soft drink, it was a great meal for under $10.

Rachel and Alon were chatty and very nice to talk with for a bit while my sandwich was getting its finishing touches. They've been open 3 months now I guess. When they asked if I'd heard about them from the Globe blurb, I said no I lived around there but had asked about them on chowhound. Alon replied that a few people that have been in lately have mentioned chowhound as their reference point.

Next time I want to try the lobster roll. There is a picture of it on their website below - it looks pretty awesome.
