I scream, you scream, we all scream . . . for grilled cheese. And for those of us who are nostalgic for Mozzarella Monday at Jar, for whom Thursday Grilled Cheese Nights at Campanile do not come often enough, there is now Meltdown, a shiny, fast-food-style joint on Culver City’s restaurant row devoted to the cult of all things grilled and cheese — with bacon, with ham and apple butter, with goat cheese and pesto, with mozzarella and tomatoes, with turkey and Brie, or with a glistening wad of Italian-style deli meats. If you are determined to carry the theme through to its conclusion, there are even dessert grilled-cheese sandwiches, notably the pressed walnut-bread sandwich with goat cheese, figs and honey, although there is occasionally a berries-and-cream grilled cheese sandwich on the message board if you go in for that sort of thing. 9739 Culver Blvd., Culver City, (310) 838-MELT or www.meltdownetc.com. Open Mon.–Fri. 11:30 a.m.–3 p.m.
