Fodor's Expert Review La Fromagerie du Passage

$$ Aix-en-Provence French

You can’t sample all of France’s 600 types of cheese at La Fromagerie du Passage, but there's a decadent selection of 20 or so, all fait maison by Laurent and Hervé Mons, who won the prestigious Meilleurs Ouvriers (Best Craftsman of France) award for outstanding cheese maker. The waiters lyrically—and patiently—explain the region or texture of each cheese, and suggest a wine with the right composition to bring out the subtle (and not so subtle) flavors. There's also an assortment of tapas, charcuterie, and desserts, and €27 euro menus that pair charcuterie and cheese with wine. While the setting is not the most romantic, there is an outdoor terrace.
