Small-batch artisan cheeses are cut to order at this friendly, well-stocked wine-and-cheese shop. The place is attitude-free, and if you’re new to the game, wine director Jan Henrichsen will help you pair your Neufchâtel with your sauvignon blanc. Recent additions to the menu, like the Nut N’ Chutney sandwich of spiced almond butter and cranberry chutney on cracked wheat bread, are perfect for a quick lunch in one of the handful of seats on the outdoor patio and Spanish cheese plates (with Mahón, rosemary Manchego and pata cabra) are perfect for a picnic.
