Having a number of meals kinds with totally different names means there are a number of alternatives so that you can uncover these eateries should you’re on a third-party meals ordering web site. You would possibly see the Grilled Cheese Manufacturing facility, the Slidery, Cross the Pasta, South Avenue Steaks, and the Candy Tooth as separate entries on Grubhub.

The Slidery has its little sandwiches within the neighborhood of 5 bucks every — however purchase two or three of any of them and the worth per sandwich goes down. We liked the Caprese slider, which after all is mozzarella, tomato, and basil, however it’s topped with a tremendous fig balsamic discount. The goat cheese burger slider steps up the bacon cheeseburger with goat cheese and strawberry preserves. And naturally there are fried rooster sliders.
Should you don’t want an enormous sandwich, these sliders make a full meal together with a home salad or caesar salad — which come from the Cross the Pasta part of the menu. Cross the Pasta additionally permits you to construct your individual pasta dish with spaghetti, fettuccine, even gluten-free penne, plus a selection of a number of sauces and toppings. Veggies, meatballs, shrimp, even artichoke hearts and sliced filet. Or one in every of our favorites: a basic rooster parmigiana over fettuccine.
The Grilled Cheese Manufacturing facility affords lots of the identical toppings, from caprese to meatballs, in your grilled cheese sandwich, but additionally a Cuban, and a strawberry bruschetta soften.
We all know we’re nowhere close to Philadelphia, however South Avenue Steaks actually does have a top-notch cheesesteak on an precise Amoroso roll. Or there’s slow-cooked pork with broccoli rabe.
As we mentioned, the benefit of ordering direct is you possibly can construct your order from multiple of those menus — and meaning you get so as to add a slice of cheesecake, tiramisu, or a bit of key lime pie from the Candy Tooth to spherical out your meal.
Ithaca Ghost Kitchen took a summer time trip, however they’re again — and earlier than lengthy they’ll be including extra picks.
