Best Cheese Selection - Picholine Alternative ??
I've got a great Cabernet that I want to enjoy with a cheese plate and maybe some carpaccio ..... It might make sense to go to a steak house ... but unless someone tells me otherwise ... I'm favoring a restaurant that has a top notch cheese plate:
I've never been to Picholine ... their dinners are prix fixe, but they told me I could have the fromage and appetizers served a cafe table ... $50 corkage, tho.
Artisinal ? Can I get them to put something special together ( $20 corkage )
4 Seasons ??? Their cheese plate must be special
Montrachet ??? No corkage fee on Monday nites .... Any cheese conoseiurs have a recommendation on their selection ???
Craft is a possibilitiy, too ... no ???
Looking forward to some stimulating discussion here.
I had the cheese plate at 4 Seasons recently- very good, get it if you're going anyway, but don't go just for that. Veritas has very nice cheese (and excellent food, plus it's really a wine haven- don't know about corkage though), and so does Blue Hill (they do an especially nice job with the condiments).
