American Melts has been in Kenilworth since it opened six years ago. Located at 515 Springfield Road (near Black Brook Park), the restaurant is a place where you can build your own grilled cheese sandwich. Customers can select from breads including country white, multi-grain wheat, and even a glazed donut. Next, they select an artisan cheese and toppings which range from tomatoes, pickles, and avocado to coleslaw, potato chips, and many other options in between. Customers can also add a protein or sauce and can pair their sandwich with tater tots, chips, or homemade tomato soup. American Melts offers gluten-free and vegan options as well. According to proprietor Rick Brams, the most popular sandwiches are the C.A.T. and the Stone Pony. Customers can order via takeout or Uber Eats. Although Brams said things have been tough during the pandemic, he is grateful for our town and says “Kenilworth is a great town to do business in.”
