Those who step into Form's crimson and brick interior find savory treats—the three owners, Brian Torres, Claude Auerbach, and Jimmy Kleinschmidt, familiarize patrons with 60 cheeses. Among them are Sweetgrass Dairy green hill, three-and-a-half year old Boerenkaas gouda, chevres with cloudlike white rinds, and parmigiano reggiano, all of which pair with charcuterie such as wild-boar sausage or prosciutto from the celebrated artisans at La Quercia.
More than 400 wines, including organic offerings, stand in glassy ranks, their colorful labels hinting at wisps of oak, sprays of fruit, and lacelike bubbles and more than 200 of these wines are under $20. Form also offers an exciting collection of gourmet foods to go, which include meatloaf with rosemary gravy, truffled salmon with coconut-curry mayo, and quinoa salad with roasted vegetables and balsamic vinaigrette.
