Some days you just want to eat like a four-year-old who finally realized that crusts are OK and vegetables aren’t going to kill you. When you feel like this, consider a trip to The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. This place feels a little like a chain, but it’s efficient and the food is tasty. You can get anything from a Cubano to a sandwich stuffed with mac and cheese, but we particularly like the mushroom and reuben options, as well as the tomato soup. (There's a gluten-free grilled cheese on the menu as well, if that's what you're looking for.)
