Only two of the ingredients they listed actually belong in a grilled cheese sandwich.  And I'd substitute the 40-year-old cheddar with something far milder (and without the stupid gold flakes), because extremely sharp cheddar in a grilled cheese sandwich is overpowering.

I'd hit it... then quit it, roughly 18 hours later.

They call it the zillion dollar cheese sandwich......but it's not a cheese sandwich and it doesn't cost a zillion dollars.....are we even sure this is food?

rich_mitch: This is how a fool and his money are parted.


Yep.

They shoulda left it at "more money than sense" and been done with it.

Dragonflew: Stoker: I'd go as high as 24.00 just because of the lobster as a side seems fair.

But it is mixed with mac & cheese!  Why mix lobster with trailer park food? I mean, I like mac & cheese, but the taste would overpower the lobster.

And also no, $100 is certainly not warranted.


Duck Dynasty & Honey Boo Boo, that's why. They are catering to trailer trash with coin.

Random Internet Persona: I get pissy when they forget my pickle spear


Sometimes, I'll admit, I don't eat my pickle spear. I just throw it away. I guess that makes me a pickle spear chucker.

When I read about food having gold in it, I can't help but think about that scene in Cryptonomicron where the Japanese WW2 vet has the main character drink something that has gold in it as a test, and they both agree that it's stupid.

/Eating and drinking things with gold in it is stupid.

endless loop and dropped dead of depression.

Because mac and cheese with lobster is awesome.  If you think that's trailer trash food then you're doing it wrong.  Very wrong and you should feel bad for being a bad person and a lousy cook.

I'd try it, once, if I was travelling on business and could expense it.

I'd ask for the gold flakes on the side though. Ew.

I saw some goose farmers performing the "force-feeding" once, those damn geese came RUNNING when it was funnel-in-the-mouth time!  I so much wanted to hate the cruel, cruel farmers, but the geese really seemed (anthropomorphism aside) pretty happy.

Like I said, I like mac & cheese. I like lobster. But just because I like them both does not mean they should be mixed. Like ice cream & gravy.

Yeah. Maybe a nice Emmental or Gruyere on that artisan bread. The aioli can stay. But the cheese has to be the star.

Lobster mac and cheese is actually very common, and pretty damn delicious.  If you like both things you will almost definitely like them together.

There is an excellent restaurant in my tiny little town that occupies a turn-of-the century bank building and is run by an insanely talented chef who believes strongly in farm to table food (and there are many farms and vineyards just outside of town).  Her lunch menu offers a "grilled cheese of the day" special for $7 that features whatever combination of bread, cheese and other ingredients strikes her fancy that day.

The Last time I ordered it I literally found myself laughing out loud for joy at how absurdly delicious it was (bacon, several artisinal cheeses I was unfamiliar with, crusty brown bread with raisins)

tiamet4: A) No it is not warranted
B) Not a grilled cheese sandwich (it's a foie gras and duck egg sandwich with cheese from the look of it)
C) Gold flakes?  Why the fark are people paying for food with gold flakes in it?  It doesn't add anything to the flavor.  You could just sprinkle some body glitter on it.

2014-04-10 04:36:07 PM  

PillsHere: If you put meat into a grilled cheese it ceases to be a grilled cheese.  It is now a panini named after whatever meat is in it.  Also gold in anything makes me not want to eat it.  Why would I intentionally ingest metal?

Beyond that, I hate foi gras, so I would nix that, but everything else sounds kind of good.  Not $100 good, but I would pay up to $40 to try that meal (with the lobster mac and cheese).  However, I better taste the truffles for that price.  I'm basing this on the fact that I order a lot of lobster mac and cheese, and usually that alone is around ~$25-35 at many "nicer" places.


Why would you want to ingest metal? Gee, I dunno. Maybe so you can continue being alive?
