It’s a simple question, but one that requires multiple answers, because Melt is many things.
It’s an energetic and eclectic gourmet comfort food restaurant. It’s a relaxing neighborhood craft beer bar. It’s a genuinely all-inclusive gathering place that welcomes everyone: tats and suits, moms and rockers, locals and visitors. It’s a melting pot and meeting spot for all!
Melt Bar and Grilled was born from Cleveland musician and chef Matt Fish’s love of two things: great craft beer and the grilled cheese sandwich. Matt’s vision was to bring classic American dishes to the table in an unpretentious and fun way because everyone can relate to a grilled cheese sandwich!
The answer to “What is Melt?” isn’t just bread, cheese, craft beer, music, and atmosphere, it’s the chemistry of it all – the way it comes together- that makes Melt unique. It’s a certain magic that can’t easily be explained, it must be experienced. Wherever you are, and whoever you are, there’s a Melt Bar and Grilled experience waiting for you.
How far back does Melt history go? Like grilled cheese itself, it goes back to childhood.
The “Craft Food Philosophy” runs deep in the Melt Bar and Grilled ethos.
