For my birthday this week, my best girlfriends took me to Lamberts. What better than some upscale BBQ? I went last year on my birthday for Sunday brunch, but had never been for dinner before.
We started with the charcuterie plate, which included some lovely pork butter (in the ramekin, top left), pork pate, beef tongue, and bologna, and on the right, an assortment of cheeses, a semi-firm, a brie-style, a lovely blue, ....there was a small menu at the table which named all the cheeses, but I can't find it with their online menus. I remember now the blue was Ewe's Blue, which I wasn't familiar with, but Googling it, I have discovered it's from the Old Chatham Sheepherding Company, who make great sheep's milk cheese and yogurt. Honey (with the honeycomb), mustard, pickled veggies, and char grilled bread filled out the plate. Lambert's menu does say "local" artisan cheese, but clearly, not all are. It was my favorite cheese on the plate though, so who's complaining?
