It’s a family affair! GCDC will offer our holiday grilled cheese “The Maccabee” inspired by Bruce’s mother, Esther! It has her homemade brisket w/ kosher pickles and cheddar cheese on grilled challah bread. Here she is with Bruce at a Barbara Streisand concert (who she claims to have discovered herself in Brooklyn).
GCDC Grilled Cheese Bar, Washington’s first and only grilled cheese-centric restaurant and bar is going entirely gluten-free for one night only in recognition of our large and loyal gluten-free following. All of our sandwiches will be grilled on bread from DC’s own Rise Bakery, our mac and cheese made with GF pasta, our beer lines replaced with hard ciders from Bold Rock, and Tito’s Vodka—the gold standard in GF distilling will be featured. Rise is baking a special GF dessert as well! It will take place Wednesday, October 25th from 4-9PM at GCDC!
GCDC is a proud sponsor of DC Beer Week! This week we are offering $3 Devil’s Backbone Vienna Lager and $3 Devil’s Backbone Striped Bass Pale Ale until supplies last!
GCDC Grilled Cheese Bar is teaming up with Bold Rock Hard Cider on Thursday, August 24th to present our guests with a tap takeover for DC Beer Week! Pairing Bold Rock drafts with our Smoked Gouda Apple with Prosciutto Grilled Cheese and Caramel Apple Bourbon Ice Cream Sandwiches!
ABOUT THE COLLECTION:
One of the best parts of living in the United States is being able to enjoy all four seasons, something I was never able to do in Guatemala, which has only a wet winter and a dry summer. Spring is one of my favorite times, with its refreshing mornings and bursts of color. It is a wonderful season to enjoy the beautiful symmetry and design of Washington, D.C.
FROM THE ARTIST:
I was born in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. I came to the United States in 2006 in search of a better life and have worked in the hospitality industry since I arrived. In 2015, I proudly joined the team at GCDC Grilled Cheese Bar in Washington DC.
I’m a self-taught amateur photographer. I learned the basics by reading articles and books, by watching instructional videos, and by observing and talking to other photographers. I started with a simple DSLR and now use a Sony mirrorless camera.
I’m an outdoors guy, and so I love to explore DC on foot and on my bike during all four seasons, looking for the perfect shot! I hope you like my work as much as I like creating it. My latest exhibition was at the National Portrait Gallery where my work was showcased for a day.
I’m super excited about this exhibit and thankful to my boss Bruce Klores, and to my family and friends for encouraging me. 10% of the sales from this show will be donated to Hogar de Nino Minusvalido Hemano Pedro in my home town which provides food and clothing to kids with disabilities.
