What is MELT? That’s a very funny question…
Simply put, Melt Bar & Grilled was born from Cleveland musician and chef Matt Fish’s love of two things: great craft beer and the humble grilled cheese sandwich. Where most people saw a quick meal comprised of two common kitchen staples, Matt envisioned the potential for so much more… “comfort food, all dressed up,” as he put it. The impetus for Melt’s selection of gourmet grilled cheese was to bring classic American dishes to the table in an unpretentious, truly unique and fun way.
With a skeleton crew of twelve other people who shared his vision, Matt opened Melt Bar & Grilled in Lakewood, Ohio in September, 2006. Not knowing what to expect, that first crew watched Melt quickly transform from a tiny punk rock beer bar to the biggest culinary buzz to hit greater Cleveland in decades. The proof of concept was undeniable. People “got it,” and the rest, as they say was history.
