Go Now: Eat + Drink

August 2012

If your idea of inspiration is shopping the counters of the Truffle Cheese Shop on Sixth Avenue or Cured in Boulder, then you need to check out Eat + Drink, a tiny cheese and gourmet shop that opened next door to Savory Spice Shop on Platte Street. Specializing in a global array of cheeses, as well as charcuterie, rustic breads, hard-to-find chocolates, and olive oils, Eat + Drink is a little slice of food-loving heaven.

The shop (which is an offshoot of the beloved Eat! Drink! in Edwards) also offers small plates and a moderate but well edited wine list, including eight rosés by the glass and a private label Cava. Pair your selection with a bountiful cheese or charcuterie plate or opt for a panino like the California made on Grateful Bread focaccia with Taleggio, fresh pear, sliced turkey, and fig preserves.

Don’t miss: Mast Brothers craft chocolate bars (pictured). Look for flavors such as Vanilla & Smoke or the Papua New Guinea bar with hints of hickory smoked bacon and aged Scotch.
