Say ‘Cheese’ (and City Cellar)

Tuesday, Jan. 20, is a great day for cheeseheads. (And I don’t mean Green Bay Packer fans).

I do mean fans of fromage, as next Tuesday has been officially designated (don’t ask me by who) as National Cheese Lover’s Day. And to celebrate, City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill (700 S. Rosemary Ave., 561/366-0071) is extending its “Cheesy Thursdays” fromagathon to include this day of passion for curdled milk.

The deal is this. You can choose five cheeses from among more than two dozen varieties of cow, sheep, goat and blue cheese, then get those selections paired with a taste of five different wines or craft beers (chosen by GM Michael Ignatowicz), all for the princely sum of $30.

If you want to make a meal of it, you can order from an menu of house-made charcuterie from chef Kevin Darr, including organic prosciutto, sopressata and salame al tartufo. The offer is good all day, and you can even get your fromage to go. Just leave the stupid cheese hat at home.
