Winter’s over, but that doesn’t mean the comfort food has to stop. April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Day, and restaurants across Denver are offering up their own unique versions of the world’s most satisfying sandwich.

To celebrate the holiday, ViewHouse’s Ballpark and Centennial locations will be serving a one-day special from executive chef Jose Guerrero, who has whipped up his take on the perennial favorite made with candied bacon and Boursin Munster cheese on a brioche bun, served with smoked San Marzano tomato bisque for $11—perfection.

The Truffle Table, which has dubbed itself “Denver’s Cheese Bar,” serves two variations of the beloved sandwich to satisfy the adventurous eater: a cheddar & herb pesto grilled cheese and a French onion grilled cheese for $11 and $12, respectively. Steuben’s opts for the classic recipe—and does it right—with huge amounts of cheese and bread toasted to perfection for just $5. And Sunny’s, one of the city’s legendary breakfast stops, offers an AM take on the sandwich: a benedict-style grilled cheese with sunny-side-up eggs, tomato, arugula and hollaindaise for $9.75.

One more bout of cheesy winter indulgence before swimsuit season hits? Yep—you’ve earned it.
