Similar to blue cheese, gorgonzola has a very distinct flavor. It gets its salty bite from its blue veining that is formed during its aging process.
This classic Italian cheese is typically used in pasta, pizzas, and as a topping for salads. Our signature Steak Salad is no exception. Our chefs have disguised a hearty steak and potato dinner into a salad, giving it a lighter flavor. Topped with a generous portion of crumbled gorgonzola, this dish will fill you up, and then some.

Swiss—our favorite, holey cheese. The pronounced flavors of swiss make for a great addition to hot dishes, such as fondue and casseroles, but chef Melissa D’Arabian had a different idea.

This burger is filled with the grown-up flavors of spicy Dijon, crimini mushrooms, tamari sauce, garlic, and, of course, swiss cheese. These hearty flavors will help you fall back in love with America’s favorite food.
