Formaggio Kitchen

Overflowing with the region’s best aged and fresh curds, Formaggio is a bona fide turophile’s haven. But even those without extensive cheese knowledge will enjoy popping into one of the three Hub-area outposts, where sample-dispensing staffers serve as ace guides for navigating cases stocked with bloomy hills of chèvre and Camembert; nutty, crystalline hunks of aged Parmesan; and fat wedges of blue cheese.
