Like the snack tray at a Roman civil court case, wine-and-cheese pairings immerse taste buds and olfactories in a palatable blend of sliced artisan creations and fragrant varietals. As tongues swoon over gourmet combos, patrons can augment eats by playing an assortment of board games or tightrope walking across the strings of the café’s jazz piano.
Milk and Roses
Milk and Roses invites visitors to take a bite out of the Old World, mingling the dairy-infused flavors of fine Italian-cheese styles with the floral flourishes and earthy aromas of Mediterranean wine. As guests deconstruct the complex flavors of a savory sheep's-milk crotonese or a sharp, creamy caciocavallo, a jazz musician coaxes sweet music from the café's piano, infusing meals with the syncopated ambiance normally reserved for a blind date with a Scott Joplin impersonator. Shelves stocked with books and board games promote more low-key mingling over glasses of pinot grigio.
