BREAKING: New ‘Melt’ grilled-cheese restaurant coming to Beavercreek


Ohio-based gourmet grilled-cheese restaurant chain Melt Bar & Grilled will open its first Dayton-area location at the Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek, Melt officials announced this morning.

The new 5,000-square-foot Melt will be built from the ground up near the main entrance to the mall, Melt officials said in a release. It will be the eighth restaurant for the 10-year-old Cleveland-based chain, which operates five restaurants in northeast Ohio and two in the Columbus area.

Plans call for a June 2017 opening. The restaurant will host a job fair at the site early next year, Melt officials said.

Melt proclaims it’s “not just a restaurant; it’s more of an event,” according to its release. Its December featured sandwich is the 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon Melt, which consists of Hickory smoked bacon, black pepper-crusted bacon, maple bourbon glazed smoked pork belly, Italian pancetta, herb cream cheese with bacon bits, house made bacon-infused mayonnaise, sharp cheddar, and romaine and sliced tomato.

“We’re looking forward to serving the best gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches in the coolest environment that Dayton has ever seen,” Matt Fish, owner of Melt Bar & Grilled, said. “We’re proud to have locations in Cleveland, Akron and Columbus and we can’t wait to get started in the Gem City.”

The restaurants also serve craft beer and cocktails. Melt’s December featured beer is Heavy Seas Winter Storm Imperial Extra Special Bitter (ESB) , and its December feature cocktail is the Mad Krampus Sangria 20/20, described as “a nod to the Christmas devil that punishes naughty children. It features Sailor Jerry rum, house-made simple syrup, fresh citrus juice, Amaretto and is finished with red wine to bring the flavors of the season into a holiday Sangria.”
