Melt Shop, New York

Lunch at Melt Shop NYC

If you’re ever craving something really hearty (heavy), unhealthy and satisfying, you need to go to (or order from) Melt Shop. On my way to California to visit my sister, I stopped to meet a friend for lunch at Melt on the way to the airport. They only have a counter and limited outdoor seating, but we were lucky to snag a table and it wasn’t too cold out (this was back at the end of March). Since we were already eating grilled cheese, I decided to go all out and order a soda and a side of “shop tots,” which came sprinkled with Parmesan and with house-made parsley pesto for dipping. The tater tots were standard but the cheese and the fantastic, flavorful sauce really made them outstanding. The sandwich (of which I could only eat half, I was so stuffed) was buttermilk fried chicken, pepper jack cheese, creamy red cabbage slaw, and “melt sauce.” It was very thick and I said, filling, but so good. I’d love to go back and try more of their cheesy creations!
