Some friends were coming in from the suburbs to hang out, eat and drink. I was sort of feeling like venturing into the city, but mostly feeling lazy. It was also threatening to rain, so we skipped waiting for a cab and made the quick walk from my house to Rembrandt's. I've raved before about the hummus & flatbread as well as the happy hour. But today I'm going to rave about cheese.
This is the Artisan Cheese plate at Rembrandt's. Huge right? So much more cheese and accompaniments than I would have expected for $10.95. Unfortunately for you all, my cheese palate is unsophisticated. Don't get me wrong, I love cheese. But I cannot discern between cheeses I've never tasted before, therefore I can't tell you what variety of cheese we inhaled that night. But I can tell you, I had a nice tall mojito while doing it.
In addition to three types of cheese and crackers, the plate was filled with olives, figs, oranges, strawberries, marinated mushrooms, grapes and fresh honeycomb!
This was an attempt at a close-up of the oozing honeycomb, but it seems the mojitos got the better of me that night, so all you get is this lousy blurry picture.
