Show 70, April 26, 2014: Chef Eric Greenspan (ex-Foundry on Melrose,) Greenspan’s Grilled Cheese Continues…

Eric GreenspanThe conversation continues with Chef Eric Greenspan…

Chef Eric Greenspan’s (ex-Foundry on Melrose) long in the works grilled cheese café is now open. It’s Greenspan’s Grilled Cheese located next door to the Melrose Umbrella Co, (the former Foundry location which is now an upscale tavern.)

Chef Eric graciously reveals the three cornerstones of excellence in grilled cheese sandwich making. Surprisingly it starts with “okay” bread.

The Melrose Umbrella Co. (a well-managed bar with specialty cocktails) is now in the front part of the former Foundry on Melrose space. The rear part of the space is being reformatted into a 30 to 40 seat fine dining space by Chef Eric. He promises his refreshed fine dining concept will make a big splash! Fine dining will always remain his focus. Perhaps a Fall opening…

Eric talks about his extensive portfolio of Food Television appearances. He is one of the very few chefs to “reign supreme” over an Iron Chef on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America.” He bested Iron Chef Bobby Flay in “Battle Goose !”

He participates in national pop-ups under the catchy El Nosh Latin / Jewish brand.
