It makes sense that the area’s best cheese plate would be found at Cheesetique’s cheese and wine bar. With an entire shop’s worth of options, its ever-changing list of a dozen selections has multiple temptations for every taste. Expertise is trusted within the industry, as well. When the Old Hickory Steakhouse at National Harbor sought a maitre de fromage e plate would be found at Cheesetique’s cheese and wine bar. With an entire shop’s worth of options, its ever-changing list of a dozen selections has multiple temptations for every taste. Expertise is trusted within the industry, as well. When the Old Hickory Steakhouse at National Harbor sought a maitre de fromage to oversee its in-house “cheese cave,” the restaurant reached out to Cheesetique alum Carolyn Stromberg. But the cheese plate at Bistro Bis is a close second. The restaurant’s attentive take sets a standard that few others even approach. Ask about its cheese plate, and you’ll receive a list of at least 16 cheeses aged and shipped from New York’s Artisanal Cheese Center (selections vary daily based on availability and the choices of cheese steward Lateef Abney). Good organization, full descriptions, and recommended wine pairings help you find the curds most likely to please your palate, whether you prefer your cheese creamy, nutty, or stinky.
