NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE DAY

We’ve been counting down until National Grilled Cheese Day for 364 days! And it’s finally here.

In honor of this oh-so-important national holiday, Cooks & Soldiers is offering, in addition to the traditional white American, Iberian ham, and black truffle Bikini, a “breakfast Bikini,” which is topped with even more ooey-gooey melted cheese and a sunny-side-up egg.
Both sandwiches cost $16. Reservations are recommended. Call 404.996.2623.
