Looking for a restaurant with an exceptional cheese plate.
Can anyone recommend a restaurant in the Bay Area (preferably South bay or SF) that has a particularly good cheese plate? Looking for somewhere special to take my wife, for whom the cheese plate is the best part of any meal. The ideal cheese plate would come from a large selection with good variety and some unusual cheeses that we may not have had before. I thought Gary Danko's cheese cart was good, but we were just there, so looking for something new to try. Thanks!

Manresa. I think it was the best I've had outside of France.

Absinthe in Hayes Valley of SF carries exceptional cheeses with food pairings that most other restaurants don't carry (honeycome with the stilton..). Although their prices are very steep compared to other restaurants, I thought it was worth the bill on a special occasion.

i had a really yummy cheese plate at the flea st. cafe in menlo park. great meal and drinks, too!
The Dining Room at the Ritz has had a great cheese cart, but I have not been in a few years so things may have changed. I am sure a quick phone call could confirm.
