Over the last few months, Ernie Brooks has been building out a small hut at Streets at SouthGlenn, preparing to open Yo'Cheese, a walk-up shop that would turn out gourmet grilled cheese and tomato soup.
Besides a menu of six to eight sandwiches, "we're making the soup fresh daily using quality ingredients," Brooks told us when he announced his plans. "And we'll have some other stuff that we experiment with on a weekly basis."
Brooks was shooting for February 1 as an opening date, and he wasn't far off: His first sandwiches started coming off the griddle on Saturday, before the snow from last week's storm had even been cleared away.
Yo'Cheese debuted with a board full of items like the "Preston," a four-cheese grilled cheese with bacon, and the "Grace," which adds diced tomatoes to the mix. And those promised experiments will be announced via Yo'Cheese's Facebook and Twitter pages as they're dreamed up.
The place is open daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
