The Poncelet Cheese Bar opened a month ago, with the purpose of sharing their passion for the Spanish tradition of quality cheese production. They work solely with small cheesemongers. “Sometimes we even know the names of the cows,” said Xavier Gomez. The entranceway is lit by a cow-udder light-fixture and presents a cheese library filled with titles such as Cheese Essentials and World Cheese Book. Entering the farmhouse-style restaurant you are hit in the nose by that unmistakable cheese smell. With a cheese cave in the back of the dining area that houses 150 kinds of cheese, this potent scent is to be expected. For a more interactive experience, sit at the bar where a cheesemaster will show you how your selection of cheeses was prepared and will give you a printout with the name of each cheese and the animal and country it came from. The cuisine at Poncelet Cheese Bar is not limited to cheese alone, but every dish does contain at least one type of cheese as an ingredient.
