There was a lot of judging going on before they even opened so I’ll be interested to hear what folks think now that they’ve actually been open for a bit. Any fans?

Also they write:

“Just in time for summer, Washington, DC’s only grilled cheese-centric restaurant GCDC is excited to open its new 16-seat patio on the bustling Pennsylvania Avenue NW, just a block from the White House. In tandem with the patio’s opening, GCDC will launch a menu of refreshing Cheese Ice Cream Sandwiches, homemade cream cheese ice creams sandwiched between brioche French toast, and will celebrate the new sweet offering by giving away complimentary ice cream sandwiches to the first 40 customers on Wednesday, July 2 starting at 4 p.m.

A refreshing, sweet summer treat, GCDC’s new Cheese Ice Cream Sandwiches feature scoops of homemade fruit and chocolate-infused cream cheese ice cream sandwiched between brioche French toast, and half-dipped in housemade sauces like chocolate ganache and bourbon caramel. Made with quality cream cheese, heavy cream, vanilla, sugar and spices, the ice creams are infused with fresh, artisan ingredients like sweet strawberries, crisp red delicious apples, coffee beans local DC-roaster Vigilante Coffee, and Grand Marnier for a boozy touch, and then served on French Toast which GCDC makes from Lyon Bakery’s Brioche Pullman loaf. The ice cream sandwiches will be available every evening from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and are $7 each.

GCDC will offer three Cheese Ice Cream Sandwich varieties:

Chocolate + Vigilante Coffee: Milk Chocolate, Grand Marnier, Cardamom, Cinnamon, half-dipped in Housemade Chocolate Ganache

Strawberry: Fresh Strawberries, Bourbon Vanilla, Brown Sugar, Lemon Zest; half-dipped in Housemade Chocolate Ganache

Caramel Apple: Fresh Red Delicious apples, cinnamon; half-dipped in Housemade Bourbon Caramel”
