Heidi Gibson & Nate Pollak of The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen

By in 2012 - Volume 14

the-american-grilled-cheese-kitchenHeidi Gibson and Nate Pollak have translated their talent for winning food competitions to winning the hearts of San Francisco with their business The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen ( Operating 7 days a week the team and their staff bring the art of grilled cheese to the highest culinary level with combinations including the mousetrap-combining 3 cheeses-Tillamook sharp cheddar, creamy harvarti and Monterey jack, the piglet including Tillamook sharp cheddar , ham, apple mustard and rosemary butter and the totally unique mac and cheese grilled cheese.

Heidi has spent a number of years as a competitive grilled-cheese chef who is the most decorated Grilled Cheese Invitational contestant in its history. She decided to get into the restaurant business after being encouraged by her competitors, judges, family and friends and opened up her first restaurant in 2010 at 1 South Park Ave near the Giants baseball stadium. She integrates a scientific approach into her craft as she holds both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in engineering from MIT.

Nate works as the general manager of The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen. His restaurant skills were honed by working his way through UCLA studying economics and the classics with multiple foodservice positions. Nate draws on his experiences as host, food server, and bartender/bar manager to create the inviting atmosphere that THE AMERICAN has to offer.

Restaurant Realty Company congratulates Heidi and Nate on their second San Francisco location to open soon at 2400 Harrison Street that they secured by working with us. We know that they will continue to please all with further variations of their unique cheesy delights.
