When local restaurant owner Jeffrey Thompson began serving over-loaded versions of the brunch classic cocktail at his O-BO eatery in Northwood Village, his customers clamored for one version in particular: the one balancing an oozy grilled cheese sandwich upon an onion ring perched just above the glass rim.
Something about grilled cheese and tomato spells comfort, even if that tomato is served in Bloody Mary form, he noted.
“Tomato soup. Tomato Bloody Mary. Same difference,” says Thompson, who also owns an antique shop and an art gallery in the historic West Palm Beach district.
Fast forward to two years and you’ll find Thompson darting between O-BO and his newly opened eatery, a fast-casual spot he named Grilled Cheese Gallery, or GCG.,
On the menu: grilled cheese and more grilled cheese.
