New Coffee Shop Crossroad NY Serves Morris Grilled Cheese, Intelligentsia and Balthazar

Recently, I decided to head to one of my favorite food trucks, Morris Grilled Cheese, only to find that it wasn’t parked in its usual spot. A quick Twitter check revealed that the truck was in New Jersey, but a selection of their unique sandwiches are now available at a recently opened coffee shop, Crossroad NY. Since the shop is located only a few short blocks from the office, I decided to grab lunch there instead.

Crossroad NY’s second floor location looks out onto Lexington Avenue through their large windows. Some tiny tables, a cozy, green couch and a butcher-block counter make up the small space. But even more exciting than the shop’s adorable décor is their food. Their sandwich offerings include a few Morris Grilled Cheese staples and one new sandwich. Created specially for Crossroad NY, The Indian One—made with edam cheese and tikka masala—is a nod to the multitude of Indian restaurants in the surrounding area. It may be a splurge, but it’s worth it: packed with oozing cheese and slightly-spicy sauce, The Indian One also contains roasted brussel sprouts and chunks of Brooklyn Cured’s chicken sausage.

In addition to Morris sandwiches, the shop also sells high-quality Intelligentsia coffee and some of the best croissants in the City, from Balthazar Restaurant. Find out more at crossroadny.com.
