  • If I hear of another burger place opening up, I think I’m going to scream. Well, maybe not, but it sure is refreshing to hear of a new, value-priced restaurant that opens up and doesn’t focus on burgers. Here’s one I’m dying to check out. Cheesme is all you grilled cheese lovers dream come true. It features 16 types of cheese (Munster, Roquefort, Manchego), 12 different breads (Texas Toast, Brioche, Fruit & Nut), a large of selection of meats, veggies, fruits and spreads and five different types of fries. Finish your meal off with homemade donuts, beignets or even a Donut Ice Cream Sundae.  This is the perfect place to end you night, as they are open until 5:00 am. Cheesme is located at 1200 Washington Avenue in Miami Beach. (786) 276-146 (UrbanDaddy)
