With the mercury slowly dropping and the crappy weather moving in, we think it's only right that you put those healthy-eating resolutions aside for an hour or two, and indulge in some old-fashioned comfort food. And, really, there's nothing better than a gooey grilled-cheese sandwich and a warm bowl of tomato soup to get you through these dismal days. Luckily for San Franciscans, the grilled-cheese varieties around these parts aren't made of Wonder bread and Velveeta. Instead, they are top-of-the-line artisanal, crafted with mouth-watering sourdoughs, Tillamook cheeses, creative dressings (apricot-jalapeño relish, anyone?), and the like. Want to see what we mean? Just click through for the four best grilled-cheese sammies in the city (believe us, we tried them all!), and cash in your cheat day, stat!
