Washington, DC (April 10, 2014) – GCDC, Washington’s first grilled cheese-centric restaurant and cheese bar, is officially opening its doors this Friday, April 11, located one block from the White House on the city’s recently upgraded Pennsylvania Avenue, NW.
A fast-casual grilled cheese sandwich lunchtime spot by day and artisanal cheese and wine, beer and cocktail bar by evening, GCDC will cater to both downtown lunchers and the after-work happy hour crowd.
During the day, GCDC will serve a playful menu of creative, specialty grilled cheese sandwiches ranging from the Korean-style Kim-Cheese-Steak and the pasta-inspired Grilled Carbonara, as well as a “Grill Your Own” option of artisanal cheeses and toppings.
Poutine and nacho-style tater tots, made-from-scratch vegan tomato soup and composed cheese and charcuterie lunch boards round out the lunch offerings.
Evening customers can come back after work for a more dressed-up menu. Elegant, artisanal cheese boards, local charcuterie and composed small plates can be paired alongside a comprehensive beverage program, featuring craft cocktails, local beers, carefully selected wines, and a nod to the owner’s hometown, the Brooklyn egg cream.
TAKE NOTE: On Saturday, April 12, GCDC will host a National Grilled Cheese Day celebration from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.with $5 specialty grilled cheese sandwiches, and half-priced draft beers and a homemade wine punch.
