Baud et Millet Review

With a cellar full of fromage—and a vast wine stock that you peruse in lieu of a list—this is a good place to get acquainted with some of the 246 different French cheeses that Charles de Gaulle famously blamed for making this such a complex, and thus difficult, country to govern. You must buzz to gain entry, and that's just the first element of the unique experience here. Order from the cheese buffet and serve yourself from the downstairs cellar, or start with a cherry tomato and Roquefort clafoutis, then move on to Camembert flambéed in Calvados. For €45 you can try a dégustation of nine cooked cheese dishes. Genuine stinky cheese lovers should know some cheeses here aren't as potent as can be had elsewhere in France.
