I’ve been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Seattle cheesemakers,Beecher’s Handmade Cheese. I used to walk by the store on my way to Union Square and it seems like they were under construction FOREVER! They’re finally open and a couple coworkers and I stopped by for a nice lunch. The great thing about Beecher’s is that it serves the cheese they make in great sandwiches and they also sell tons of cheese to take home:
The flatiron location is huge and they actually make cheese there as well:
Beecher’s is such a cute store and sells all types of different foods and packaged goods:
I went with the Beecher’s special, a grilled cheese sandwich with mustard, basil and tomato:
The sandwich was awesome – creamy cheese with thinly sliced tomatoes and fresh basil leaves. My friend, Kevin, also ordered a large container of the macaroni and cheese. They passed out samples but I decided against ordering any because the noodles were a little mushy for me.
I’m excited to try the cheeses at Beecher’s and try more of their sandwiches!
