Melted at 101 Stanton: Setting the Record Straight

Posted on: April 12th, 2010 at 6:13 am by

In response to Friday’s post about the new restaurant opening at 101 Stanton Street, the proprietor wrote in to set the record straight. Notably, that the establishment is called MELTED, not Meltdown as previously reported (yes, the sign was vandalized).

Hey everyone!

Glad to hear from some of you. I have received many calls concerning the establishment. Especially one who notified my of defacing of the sign posted on the establishment.

The name of the restaurant will be called Melted, not Meltdown.

I will be opening a grilled cheese restaurant in Organic Avenue’s old location. Essentially, it’s a grown up restaurant of what we loved growing up, grilled cheese. To make it a bit more casual/social place to dine, I am seeking a beer/wine license for the establishment.

The location will have a bar of approximately 20 feet. It’s primary source of revenue will be from the food that it will be serving.

Not only will grilled cheese sandwiches be on the menu, cheese incorporated salads, appetizers, side dishes, and fresh ice cream AND gelato!

For those that do not crave any cheese at all, we will serve tender rib eye steak, baked salmon, and even seared chicken!

I understand that the community has it’s concerns and I will be more than glad to answer anymore questions in detail. I will also be in the area throughout the week.
