The 44th Ward Dinner Party is dead, but now maybe grilled cheese finally is getting some traction as a fast-casual meme. With Cheesie's Pub and Grub, Dion Antic's Melt, and next month The Big Cheese (4229 N. Lincoln), three makes it a trend. The owner, now occupying the North Center space formerly home to Delhi-6 and Choi's Sushi Roll, is planning a specialty grilled cheese and soup centered menu, but he's been placed under a gag order by another publication, so all I can tell you is to admire the build out on Facebook and look for an early to mid April opening. The people of Everyblock are sure getting excited.
