Get lucky and score the "chef's table" in the cheese cave, at this great elegant (yet casual) French bistro devoted to cheese (with over 160 different cheeses to choose from!!)
The French onion soup was one of the most decadent and delightful (if not exactly expected flavor) I have ever had (here, or in France!)
Try the fondue, where you can order whatever sorts of dipping delicacies you desire (from beef tips to apple slices). Also try the beet salad with goat cheese and the croque monsieur, bien sur! Don't skip the chocolate fondue for dessert!! This decadent creation comes in an elegant copper pot atop a small flame, accompanied by homemade marshmallows, dried apricots, delicate Madeline cookies, fresh strawberries and sliced bananas.
Party to go? Call Artisanal for "to-go" versions of their fondues for special gatherings outside the restaurant.
