Miami’s dining scene is stuck on repeat.
Here to break the mold: The Cheese Course, opening today in Midtown. The European-style shop stocks more than 150 artisanal cheeses and operates as both bistro (with patio seating) and gourmet market.
Fromage from fourteen countries is arranged by category (fresh, bloomy or washed rind, semihard, hard, and blue) and served by the pound. Pair it with a bottle of wine (starting at just $15); charcuterie like prosciutto di Parma, Serrano ham, and soppressata; or accompaniments both sweet (fruit preserves, caramelized nuts) and savory (sun-dried tomato pesto, olive tapenade).
Don’t know what goes with a Brie de Meaux? Let the experts arrange a tray with fig spread, green apples, and sliced baguette. The specialty cheeses also come on sandwiches and salads.
So feel free to mix things up.
