The Cheese Course pampers dairy devotees with more than 150 artisanal cheeses, plus a thoughtfully constructed menu of delectable comestibles. Regional trios of cheeses ($12.95) allow connoisseurs to expand their palates without undergoing primordial tongue stretching. Nibble your way through a patriotic mélange of American cheeses that includes Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog goat cheese (CA), Old Chatham camembert (NY), and Pleasant Ridge Reserve (WI), or snack on a Franco-centric sampling of Sainte-Maure, camembert, and comté. Each trio comes with accoutrements such as sliced baguettes and sundried tomato pesto, but more substantial hungers can also be halted with the help of an array of sandwiches, such as an albacore white tuna melt with gruyere ($8.45), or with the greeneried goodness of a salad, such as English field greens with blue cheese, caramelized walnuts, and mustard-shallot vinaigrette ($7.95). Breakfast items, such as herb omelette baguettes ($8.45) and homemade quiche ($8.45), are served morning, noon, and night, creating a dangerous paradox of logic in which every meal is the most important of the day.
These days, it's hard to know what exactly you're eating when your eating beef—even if you cooked it yourself. The modern meat industry pumps their cattle full of antibiotics and hormones that make the meat seem more appealing while being worse for your health. Besides that, they don't feed the cows their natural diet of grass and clover, opting for cheaper corn and grain instead without even letting them use ketchup. Gaucho Ranch aims to change all that. Drawing on the old gaucho tradition of South America, they import their beef from a family farm in Uruguay, where it is guaranteed to be raised entirely naturally and fed exactly what it wants to eat. The result are beautiful cuts of beef that are lower in cholesterol and fat, higher in Omega 3s and Vitamin E, and delicious on top of everything else.
At JMC Restorative Medicine, certified aestheticians rejuvenate and revitalize flagging façades with an invigorating oxygen facial and gold mask. After a mini-consultation to determine dermatological desires, a friendly technician administers a 45-minute red-carpet oxygen facial (a $125 value), rolling out medical-grade oxygen across the surface of the skin to aid in deeper absorption of vitamins, nutrients, and moisturizing hyaluronic acid. Then, facial mavens apply a gold mask (a $20 value), stimulating new skin-cell growth, treating sun damage, and increasing facial real-estate values. Complexions walk away hydrated, firmed, and replenished with reduced inflammation and redness, as well as a decreased appearance of fine lines.
Global Liquors stocks waiting wet bars and larders with a spectrum of spirits and gourmet noshes. A specialty cellar keeps an array of international wines at their ideal temperature, ensuring that the 2008 Tabali Reserve chardonnay ($17.99) and peppery Argentinean Navarro Correas Alegoria malbec ($19.50) age gracefully and don't catch colds. Invest in a sleek black bottle of Ty Ku sake ($17.99), or craft sophisticated cocktails out of spirits such as Tito's Handmade Vodka ($19.99). A feast of refined spreads and snacks awaits its perfect cocktail pairing in a delicatessen featuring notable noshes including Woolrich Dairy's triple-créme goat brie ($6.89) and the smoky lemon zing of Icelandic Stromluga herring caviar ($4.99). Global Liquors hosts weekly tastings during which patrons may wander amid wooden shelves teeming with bottles as they sip spirits, taste new noshes, and play Pin the Cork on the Bottle.
Kouzíne puts a local spin on Latin American and European treats, gourmet meats, specialty condiments, and more. Before heading to a holiday party, pick up a hefty hostess gift such as the Argentine wines and jellies basket ($45), which comes stuffed with two bottles, two wine-infused jellies, and an unofficial pass to the front of the bobbing-for-apples line. The two-tier Kouzíne appetizer and wine tower ($49.50) includes a Camino 7 Lagos malbec from Argentina, cold cuts, cheeses, and green olives. The Latin sensation ($56.50) displays a combination of Latin American wines and delicacies in a traditional brown wicker basket known to ward off evil plastic bags. To circumvent possible pantry claustrophobia, bypass goodie bundles and instead peruse Kouzíne's selection of loose wines, cheese accompaniments, and artisan fruits.
