Downtown Cheese, where kind men, knowledgeable in all things coagulated, fermented, aged, cultured and ripened, will hand you tiny spoons tipped with exotic cheeses that will unfurl in your mouth and make you mmmmmm. Where the delicacies on offer will overwhelm your senses and make you wish you, like the bovine whose product you’re sampling, had more than one stomach. But pictures are worth more than words. And at Downtown Cheese, the neon lights sure are pretty.
Recommended: going to Downtown Cheese with no idea of what you want except vague adjectives and sketchy descriptions of food–I tried ‘not too crumbly or as strong as a bleu, but that would go well with a salad, with no meat, and maybe walnuts’ and walked away with an amazing creamy goat-like cheese ripened in roquefort mold ash that was perfect for my salad.
