Dear SOS: One of my favorite late-night meals has been sitting at the bar at Lucques on Melrose, snacking on the grilled cheese sandwich and washing it down with a gin gimlet. I can make the gimlet but can never duplicate the combination of crispy bread and several cheeses. Help. Gary McDaniel Oxnard FOR THE RECORD: Grilled cheese: In a recipe for Lucques' grilled cheese with shallots in Wednesday's Food section, the oven temperature was omitted. The oven should be heated to 400 degrees.

Order a club sandwich from hotel room service in Denver and you will spend an average of nearly $12. Order that same sandwich in Los Angeles and you will be out about $17. That was one of the findings in a study by the travel website TripAdvisor, in an attempt to find out which cities have the highest costs for in-room hotel extras. To conduct the study, the website collected prices for a club sandwich, the dry cleaning of one shirt and several mini-bar accessories from hotels in 62 cities, including 15 in the U.S. Las Vegas was found to have the priciest in-room amenities, at an average of $68. Denver was the least expensive at $41. Los Angeles ranked the fourth most expensive city at nearly $61. The most expensive international city was Helsinki, Finland, where the average hotel amenities bill came to nearly $89 - that includes $20 to dry clean a shirt and a whopping $38 for a club sandwich.

WASHINGTON -- At least they agreed on the sandwiches. President Obama and GOP congressional leaders emerged from a lunch meeting Wednesday to report they still don't agree on a strategy for deficit reduction, but the hoagies were tasty. White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters the president used the meeting, the first since February, to urge House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to take up his short list of legislative priorities aimed at the economy.

WASHINGTON - With nothing public on his schedule and an anonymous quote from an administration official to bat away, President Obama walked out of the White House with Vice President Joe Biden on Friday to pick up sandwiches and engage in a little damage control. "There's no winning,” Obama told reporters before ordering lunch at a favorite haunt near the White House. “No one is winning.” The president's rare midday stroll outside the White House came as he tried to contain the fallout from a senior administration official's comment that the White House was “winning” in the budget fight that has frozen parts of the government.

Could it possibly get any easier than sandwiches? Probably not. Simple, fast and easy to consume, sandwiches are tailor-made for dinner after a long day. This panini inspiration comes courtesy of chef and cookbook writer Deborah Madison and her husband, Patrick McFarlin, in their book "What We Eat When We Eat Alone. " Sandwiches, simple to make and adaptable to almost any ingredients you have on hand, are a perfect choice whether you're feeding the family or flying solo. This version -- ciabatta bread piled with mustard greens, cheese and roasted red peppers, then cooked in a panini maker or skillet -- is one of McFarlin's favorites.

National Grilled Cheese day is just around the corner, and to celebrate, The Melt restaurant is giving away 10,000 grilled cheese sandwiches. We're picturing mountains of grilled bread and hot, melty cheese being tossed to hungry mobs of people wearing napkin bibs holding Thermoses of tomato soup.  In actuality, it should be a little more civil. The San Francisco-based grilled-cheese-centric chain is giving the first 10,000 people who sign up at eatcheese.com a code to receive a free melt.

Salads have long been the mainstay of light, summer meals. But now sandwiches are starting to nudge salads aside. There are a lot of reasons for our renewed interest in sandwiches. We are now nutritionally savvy enough to know that bread is indeed the staff of life. Some of us are such bread fans, in fact, that the filling has become secondary to the quality of the bread that holds it. And a sandwich makes a much more satisfying meal than a salad--even when the latter is accompanied by bread.

Count me lucky to have a neighbor who keeps chickens and who brings me a carton of pretty pale blue or brown eggs with stand-up gold yolks whenever she comes to dinner. There's nothing that beats fresh eggs scrambled, sunny side up or gently coddled. After tasting the difference, it can be hard to go back to the regular eggs. Some restaurants, though, are cooking eggs with the attention and care they deserve and are garnering a fan base for their egg dishes. Migas at HomeState, A Texas Kitchen At the breakfast and lunch spot devoted to Tex-Mex cuisine, Austin native Briana Valdez serves up eggs in breakfast tortillas and in migas - eggs sort scrambled with crispy corn tortilla strips, onions and cheddar cheese.

Re "Subway to remove bread ingredient," Feb. 7 It is appalling what the Food and Drug Administration calls safe. To my surprise I find that the FDA-approved chemical azodicarbonamide, considered to be "safely used" in food, is used in some Subway bread and is also commonly found in rubber shoe soles and yoga mats. Tasty. I understand that Subway promotes a healthy lifestyle, but this is one thing my exercise and eating habits should not have in common. The American food industry possibly is not only sickening people with chemical enhancements such as azodicarbonamide, which has been linked to asthma and respiratory problems, it is also starving us of nutrients by providing foods that temporarily satisfy but are so processed and artificial that there is little to no nutritional value left in them.

Forget the war on Christmas; now the nanny statists have taken aim at another storied holiday tradition (at least if you live in Wisconsin): cannibalism. OK, wait, that's not quite accurate (though it is a heck of lede). It's actually the “cannibal sandwich” that has caught the all-seeing eye of Big Government - and it doesn't like what it's seeing. First, some background, for those folks who live in normal places and eat normal food - or those who are having visions of the wood-chipper scene in “Fargo” (which wasn't even set in Wisconsin, by the way, for you geographically challenged Californians)

SACRAMENTO - Low wages paid by the fast-food industry come with a high public cost for California taxpayers, academics and advocates for the working poor told state lawmakers. Workers at hamburger, pizza and other, mainly franchise, eateries are paid at near-minimum-wage levels, making them eligible for public assistance that totaled an average of $717 million a year in California from 2007 to 2011. The condition of low-wage fry cooks and sandwich makers was the focus of a joint hearing of the Senate and Assembly labor committees Wednesday.

Contenders on the hit show "Top Chef" aren't known for being humble. That's why some L.A. foodies were surprised to hear that Alex Eusebio -- a Season 5 contestant and a hometown favorite -- had quietly opened an unassuming gourmet sandwich shop in Toluca Lake called Sweetsalt Food Shop. Before being cast on "Top Chef," Eusebio, who is of Dominican descent and moved to L.A. from New York, was the chef at an Echo Park restaurant called 15. The place had been transformed from a pupuseria into a homey bistro and Euesbio's sharp flavors and precise cooking style soon made 15 a popular neighborhood destination with a seemingly bright future.

Ever since I went on the low-carb Atkins diet, I've been thinking about sandwiches, which are basically forbidden on the plan. I've been thinking of the incomparable taste and satisfaction of meat between two slabs of bread, of where renowned sandwiches -- the po' boy and the croque-monsieur, for example -- came from and of great sandwiches I have known during my travels.
