After searching and searching, we finally came across Artisanal, a French restaurant in the city. Not only did it have amazing reviews, it was also labeled as "The Best Cheese Shop in Manhattan." Tessa and I, being cheese fiends, jumped at the chance to be able to gorge ourselves on god's gift. Once we arrived, we sat down and began to enjoy our meal. For the appetizer, we shared the cheese plate with three cheeses: a delectable goat cheese that was as creamy as creamy could be, an uber soft brie that melted in our mouths, and finally, the German Lumberger, aka The Best Cheese Ever. The perfect amount of stench and ripeness, we demolished the plate with fervor. I wish I had a picture of the plate, but I think I was too excited to remember that I had a camera with me. For our entrees, Tessa ordered the Wild Mushroom Risotto and I chose the Trout Almondine.
