Her excellent selection of American farmstead cheeses is her calling card, but Anne Saxelby may also want to consider getting into the sandwich business. The proprietor of Saxelby Cheesemongers is known to show up at various outdoor food markets peddling a superlative grilled cheese: At a recent New Amsterdam Market, she layered Wisconsin cheese curds and Mother-in-Law Kimchi into a length of focaccia, and then grilled the hell out of it until the molten cheese melded with the fiery pickled vegetables. Fat and spice united to create not so much a sandwich as a high-octane fever dream. Though her creations aren't available at her shop, they're definitely worth hunting down amid the market crowds. Essex Street market, 212-228-8204
