Keep in mind that coming to Beecher’s for lunch requires standing in a line full of tourists sampling curds and talking very loudly about the woman at the market who dresses up like a stone statue. But at the end of that line is glorious mac and cheese penne that Oprah once named one of her favorite things. You’ll want a cup of that. Just save some room, because nothing’s better here than the grilled smoked turkey and flagship cheddar cheese sandwich. It’s perfectly toasted, with those crispy cheese bits that stick to the bread when it gets caught in the panini press, and you need to eat it at least once.
