Courtlin Tried Out a New Coralville Restaurant Last Week [PHOTOS]
Every year during our Radiothon in Iowa City, I try to stop by at least one restaurant that I've never been to before. It's not often that I'm down in that area, so I have a pretty extensive list of places I want to go. It wasn't tough to pick a place this time around, though!
A couple of weeks ago while I was doing a live broadcast, a listener told me that I needed to eat at Brick & Iron in Coralville. I remember writing an article about the restaurant back in January shortly after they opened, but there have been so many restaurant openings since then that I totally forgot about it! I happened to look at their Instagram page last week, and I knew immediately that I would be eating there for dinner on Thursday night. Why? I'll show you:
That work of art above is a deep-fried grilled cheese smothered in cheese sauce. As you can see, we ordered it on Thursday night. I'm not lying when I tell you it was even BETTER than I thought it was going to be, and I thought it was going to be pretty amazing. Unfortunately, it's not on Brick & Iron's regular menu, it was a special in honor of the Iowa State Fair, but I hope that they'll bring it back someday!
In addition to the deep-fried grilled cheese, my friends and I also shared some delicious cheese bread and brisket nachos. Everything we had was SO good.
Brick & Iron is located over near the Iowa River Landing in the same building as the Latitude apartments and condos. Parking is scarce, but the food makes it worth it!
