Suddenly, cheese has become essential. Every food magazine seems to have a monthly article touting an artisanal wonder, and every restaurant offers some sort of cheese course. And it's about time. For 25 years (we celebrate our Silver Anniversary this summer) cheese has been an essential component of dining at L'Espalier.
ESQUIRE MAGAZINE has touted us for presenting one of the 10 best cheese boards in America. And we proudly introduce CHEESE TUESDAY, a once a month celebration of cheese and wine, featuring a four course meal, matching wines, and sumptuous cheese tasting, all for $55.00
Chef Frank McClelland and his Maitre d' and fromager Louis Risoli are passionate about cheese, seeking out handcrafted, artisanal cheeses with great character and depth of flavor. A nightly array of 30 cheeses is presented to our guests. Our selections are truly international, featuring outstanding European, American, and even Australian cheese.
Cheese is available as either a selection between main course and dessert, or as the Grand Fromage portion of our seven course-tasting menu. The cheeses change seasonally (and week to week) and are always served at the peak of their ripeness.
Please call us to book your reservation for CHEESE TUESDAY. Risoli's upcoming events will include Cheese of Southern France, Northern Italy, and New England Artisanal.
