It was a sad day when The Cheese Shop of Des Moines announced it was no longer serving its addictive toasted cheese sandwiches from the kitchen in its tiny basement.
But for toasted cheese devotees, these popular melty sandwiches are getting an upgrade. Instead of being cooked in a giant toaster oven in the shop’s lower level, they’ll be cooked on a hot griddle in a big kitchen. And for people who were fond of Wednesday night fondue, there’s great news in store.
Cheese Bar DSM opened Thursday, June 1, on Ingersoll Avenue’s restaurant row. And it’s ready to offer Des Moines food enthusiasts a variety of cheese dishes made with fromage from around the world.
