Once upon a time, there was a local chef from Cleveland, Ohio who wanted to create a restaurant that was the perfect "combination of comfort food dressed up and beer." The entire concept of his restaurant grew because of his love for big, cheesy grilled cheese sandwiches. Ever since 2006, Cleveland’s Melt Bar and Grilled has offered many unique gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, such as The Westside Monte Cristo (honey ham, smoked turkey, swiss, american, crispy beer battered and deep fried, mixed berry preserves for dipping), The Parmageddon (two potato & cheese pierogi, fresh napa vodka kraut, grilled onions, cheddar) and the The Godfather (three cheese lasagna, hearty red sauce, provolone, garlic spiked bread, provolone cheese). All of their sandwiches are also offered vegetarian/vegan style, too! There is also a plethora of beers to choose from. At any given time, there are more than 150 beers on the menu, usually with around 20 on tap. The restaurant has a relaxed, comfortable and often full-to-capacity atmosphere. Melt puts a new spin on the same-old bar food and the often predictable selection of brews, and it does so in a setting that provides something for everyone.

complete, you bring yourself and your new tattoo to Melt for a few photos. Once paperwork is finished, you get your official tattoo number and are presented with the Melt Tattoo Family card. With this, you get the great benefit of being a member - 25% off any purchase at Melt Bar and Grilled... FOR LIFE! Call us crazy, but unless you have tasted the ooey gooey goodness of a Melt grilled cheese sandwich, you won't understand.
This brings me to my reason for this post - Tattoo Tuesday. Yes, I have a Melt-themed tattoo. And I love the simplicity of the outline of its logo. And quite frankly, I would never have the guts to do much more with it (maybe some color) - but here are a few individuals who personalized their Melt tattoos in the most creative ways.
Would you ever get a Melt tattoo?
I guess that's some food for thought.
