SoDel Concepts is giving its guests a tasty way to beat the post-holiday blues. From now until Saturday, Feb. 16, all 10 of the hospitality group’s restaurants are offering grilled cheese specials.

“This is the fourth year that we’ve spotlighted grilled cheese in January, and it’s a big hit,” said Chef Doug Ruley, vice president of SoDel Concepts. “It’s easy to see why. There are few dishes packed with as much nostalgia and comfort as a grilled cheese sandwich.”

Don’t expect pedestrian bread and cheese.  SoDel Concepts’ restaurants have tweaked the classics to offer some creative takes. At Fish On in Lewes, for instance, maybe find a patty melt with Swiss cheese, mushrooms, Djionnaise and a sunny-side-up egg. 

Bluecoast Seafood Grill + Raw Bar in Rehoboth Beach has featured beef tenderloin and roasted winter veggies in its grilled cheese creation. At NorthEast Seafood Kitchen in Ocean View, maybe find a grilled cheese with lobster, Serrano ham and mozzarella on focaccia bread. 

“Because the restaurants are near each other, our frequent guests and locals get a kick out of trying the grilled cheese specials at each location,” Ruley said. 

Once the grilled cheese frying pans are put away in February, SoDel Concepts will once again roll out Girl Scout Cookie Month. Each restaurant will create a specialty dessert using an assigned cookie. The sweet promotion, which includes a contest between SoDel Concepts chefs, each year raises money for the Girl Scouts organization.
