It is always a delight when we find something we crave a little closer to home:
I did a double-take in front of the cheese fridge at Bazzini's. They're now carrying a beautiful selection from Artisanal Cheese Company. They're more than just purveyors of cheese, they're more like curators. When Artisanal puts their stamp on cheese, you know it's going be good. They had one of my personal favorites: Dutch Roomano--this hard, orange cheese is old enough for kindergarten and will make a believer out of you. Butterscotch is the word that will come to mind. Buy a hunk and try to resist nibbling. In the past, I had to make a special trip up to the Artisanal restaurant in the Flatiron district, but now Tribeca has its own supply.
