Love aged cheddar? Can’t get enough of Brie? We’ve picked some of our favorite spots to enjoy a cheese platter to share or have all to yourself—we promise we won’t judge.

Tannin Wine Bar

If you love variety, take a trip to Tannin. Choose three of the restaurant’s cheese offerings from all over to create the perfect tasty plate. We can’t get enough of the honey almond chèvre ($15 for choice of three, $6 for individual cheeses).

Blue Grotto

Nothing pairs better with a delectable cheese plate than some fruit and wine. Satisfy your taste buds with this cheese plate ($7 during happy hour) complete with apple slices and dates.
