Pumpkin Grilled Cheese
There are grilled cheese sandwiches and there are grilled cheese sandwiches with brown sugar - one of our favorite at-home recipes. Then there’s the grilled cheese sandwich loaded with roasted pumpkin and caramelized onions at Cafe Beatrice, which is the best pumpkin thing we’ve ever had. That may not really be saying much given the available options out there - who thought pumpkin pie milk would be a good idea? - so we’re going to call it the sandwich of the year. We hope you’re placing an order right now.
Café Beatrice is the first of three “restaurant concepts” set to open at the new Lexington space in East Cambridge. It’s an all-day cafe run by the same team as Puritan & Co., so you already know to expect some interesting flavor combinations. Their opening menu, for instance, has a roasted pumpkin grilled cheese and miso broccoli melt.
