Cheese Please

You've just picked up your favorite Côtes du Rhône from the Wine Seller when it hits you that you don't know a Lincolnshire Poacher from a Stinking Bishop. Fear not, the neighbors have you covered. The St James is an encyclopedia of all-things-once-milk as much as it is a lunch spot. The staff will kindly help you navigate the mounds of stinking goodness as locals gathered around small tables take to their lunches of charcuterie platters, salads, and cheese sandwiches you wish your momma made for you as a kid. The place is bright and whistle clean: a character flaw or muted background for the cheese is up for debate, but retains a communal feel as the place fills quickly during the lunch hour. They have an equally impressive collection of cured meats from Molinari and Cremanelli and patés made from the likes of duck, boar, and venison to compliment whatever variety of cheese you've chosen. As the warmer months come on the noshing moves out onto the patios to ensure your midday bliss.
