Taste of the Town: Toasted in Winter Park
From the simple “101” grilled cheese made of cheddar cheese and tomato, to the “Braised Brisket” grilled cheese made of fontina cheese, brisket, sweet tea caramelized onions and housemade barbecue sauce, Toasted’s menu turns classic grilled cheese on its head.
“The different combinations of grilled cheeses amaze people. A lot of our guests come in and look at our menu and say, ‘I never would have thought of that,” said restaurant manager Loida O’Connor.
The idea for the restaurant sprung from a simple concept of creating a grilled cheese food truck, O’Connor said.
In addition to the variety of grilled cheeses and burgers, Toasted’s menu also features tomato soup, a variety of salads and Toasted’s take on macaroni and cheese. The menu also offers vegan options, and the restaurant provides a catering service.
