We went to Fromage because we love cheese and were in town. Everything was delicious and we especially enjoyed the 5-cheese cheesemonger’s delight board. The wine was also delicious and we had a few small plates. It was nice and quiet and perfect for our date. Our only suggestion is a cheese-based dessert. I would highly recommend Fromage! More
