Artisanal Review

This spacious brasserie is a shrine to cheese, the passion of chef-owner Terrance Brennan. Though service can be spotty, gastronomes and business lunchers still flock here for the more than 150 cheeses—available for on-site sampling or retail sale—then stay to enjoy their selections with one of 160 wines by the glass. Hot fromage-imbued fare also is satisfying, with preparations like addictive gougère cheese puffs, onion soup gratiné, and several types of fondue. For curd-adverse customers, steak frites or selections from the raw bar should satisfy.

    Artisanal Review

    Maybe the food is okay, but the noise level, crowding and brisk service is really jarring.Unless you're suffering a cheese attack, skip it.

    WHAT?! I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!

    Not terribly impressed with the impersonal service and the decibel level at this jam packed cheese shrine. Had a splitting headache when I left. Food's okay, but left feeling rushed and hoarse from shouting.
