THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED MeltDown etc. Restaurant Review

: Ryan Afromsky opened this stylish café in downtown Culver City based on one dish: grilled cheese. Chef Wendy Jacobs-Riche, a Culinary Institute of America graduate previously with Patina and Chinois on Main, helped write the menu. Specialties include a gooey sandwich with sharp cheddar, Muenster and Fontina on sourdough; and a “Market Melt” with herbed goat cheese, grilled farmers market vegetables, caramelized onions and walnut pesto on ciabatta. For an old-school treat, order the "Partial Meltdown," half a sandwich with a cup of fresh tomato soup. "Breakfast Melts" include the Cleo with dill-chive cream cheese, smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and caramelized onions on rye. For dessert, expect “Sweet Melts” like Brie and apricot preserves on walnut bread.
