Happy calorie alert!

NJ.com recently named the top 25 best grilled cheese sandwiches in the Garden State and three ooey-gooey locals made the list… Fromage Grill in Cranford, American Melts in Kenilworth and &grain in Garwood.

The publication noted that there is something about melted cheese that warms even the coldest of hearts and soothes the most stubborn of stomachs, calling grilled cheese the ultimate comfort food.

The reviews gave high marks to all three restaurants for quality ingredients and uniqueness.
