5 Facts about GCDC, the New Grilled Cheese Place

Until now, grilled cheese addicts have subsisted largely on rumblings about GCDC, coming to 1730 Pennsylvania Ave. NW in early February. Courtesy of a press release, here are five things to know about the new enterprise, particularly for those who want a sandwich that reaches beyond white bread and Kraft singles.

· The owners are a father-son team, Bruce and Steven Klores (it's their first restaurant), and New York's Sophie Slesinger of Saxelby Cheesemongers will be handling the cheese side of the operation.

· Here are some items to expect that are not grilled cheese sandwiches: charcuterie boards, local wines and beers, loaded tater tots, soups and salads. Some nostalgic beverages to look forward to include homemade chocolate mil and egg creams.

· The selection of grilled cheese options will rotate consistently. Some examples might be a French Onion Soup in a sandwich, a lobster and gouda grilled cheese, or a turkey pesto sandwich with mozzarella.

· Spanish sandwich the Montadito will also get an interpretation at GCDC, stuffed with manchego. Look out, expanding chain 100 Montaditos?

· Where there is grilled cheese, there is tomato soup. GCDC's version will be dairy-free and feature San Marzano tomatoes.
