This is a hidden gem (though less well hidden than it used to be). Not only is Steve able to source and offer some cheeses that are otherwise unavailable within the entire US. His affinage skills, and his willingness to pay what it takes for quick, quality shipment (even from distant locations) ensure that even when he offers a cheese available elsewhere, what he sells is superior to the same cheese from his competitors, and presents the best possible expression of the cheese makers' art. Add to that Steve's desire to match the perfect cheese with each buyers' particular taste preferences, and being able to buy the perfect wine to match the cheese without leaving the building (at Square Deal Wines, which is in the same space as Steve's Cheese), and you have an arguably unmatchable opportunity that is simply too good to pass up.

Steve Jones, the cheesemonger, knows his cheese. He and his employees all seem genuinely happy to spread the word about what good cheese tastes like. In addition to cheese, he also carries a good number of salamis, hams, and other pork products. When coupled with the nearby French bakery, one can build a truly gourmet lunch for about the same amount of money as any of the nearby restaurants-- though some assembly is required, of course.

The best part is being able to try any cheese in the case to see if it's palatable. The next best part is being able to ask these guys anything about cheese and get an intelligent, non-pretentious answer. Finally, their recommendations on things to try are excellent-- which is great when initially confronted by The Wall of Cheese.
