2009 BEST Gourmet Shop, West

The Cheese Shop

No one makes booze-and-cheese pairings as easy as Wasik’s, as it’s known by locals. Walk in toting an obscure red or a craft beer, and depart with a sack full of goodies to go with it. Chalk this up to both experience—the Wasik family was ripening and selling artisanal cheese long before it was a foodie obsession—and a massive inventory that ranges from pungent aged cheddars to Basque sheep’s-milk cheeses to Vermont chévres.
