Grilled cheese sandwich served at a restaurant near Cactus Forty-2 in Phoenix, Arizona



Did you know that grilled cheese sandwiches were once called "cheese dreams"?

The name changed in the 1970s, and originally, the sandwiches were made with one slice of bread and a piece of cheese.

If you would like to enjoy a gourmet version, head to one of these restaurants in Phoenix:


ZuZu is a neighborhood eatery where the table is set for an unforgettable meal. Renowned chef Russell LaCasce prepares innovative American cuisine while the bartenders shake things up with crafty cocktails. Guests can enjoy their time inside or on the cozy patio complete with colorful flowers and comfortable seating areas. The menu offers a prime rib grilled cheese sandwich featuring sourdough bread, fontina, Gruyere, and Creole aioli. It pairs well with the sauteed broccoli rabe and a tall glass of iced tea.


Switch is a casual eatery where Chef Jason Peterson cooks from the heart. He became passionate about cooking as a young boy when he licked the frosting off of his mom's egg beaters. Chef Peterson believes that home-cooked meals tell a story, and he only uses the finest, freshest ingredients. The dining area features local urban art, and the staff greets everyone like family. The triple grilled cheese sandwich can be enjoyed with avocado or bacon and a side of sweet potato fries. 


What began with old friends around the table sharing food and wine became Beckett's Table eight years later. Find this restaurant in the Arcadia neighborhood. The fresh ingredients arrive from farms within thirty miles of the restaurant. As guests wait for their meal, they can enjoy a glass of wine from a list that has won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for the last five years. For dinner, try Beckett's original grilled cheese sandwich that's served with roasted red pepper tomato soup.
