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

Eric GreenspanChef Eric spoke to us from a mysterious “Family Reunion” in humid Louisiana. That might be a cover story for an activity that needs to stay secret for the moment…

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.)

Eric won the 2008 Grilled Cheese Invitational in Los Angeles which was the inspiration for the grilled cheese café. That highly-praised winning sandwich, The Champ, is on the menu. It’s a sweet & savory grilled cheese wonder with taleggio, braised short rib, and apricot spread on raisin-walnut bread.

Chef Eric is also the Chef/Owner of The Roof on Wilshire.
