If it smells like cheese :)

  • Yes, I would go back!

So I went to get my "end-of-the-world" cheese bomb... A simple store, no pretense. But if you like cheese with strong flavor, if you like to try new cheeses and explore a new aroma, this is the place to go. They also have a section for aged and cured die for. We had the Air Dry beef. Extra-thinly sliced to perfection. The Foie Gras was ok, but it's not their specialty. Cheese is! Service was friendly, welcoming and no pressure to place your order.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
