Snackshot: Say Cheese!

Today's savory Snackshot comes to us from aynsavoy and Café Rabelais.

Cheese plate at Cafe Rabelais

From the photographer's description:

"I don't remember the exact names of the cheeses, but one was like an Emmenthaler, one was like brie, and one was almost bleu in taste. Very good in all, and the fruit and nut mix was nice."

A cozy French outpost in Rice Village, Café Rabelais specializes in traditional Gallic fare like terrines of creamy foie gras and fat moules, while its sister restaurant, Brasserie Max and Julie, serves similar food in a trendier spot along Montrose Boulevard. Both are owned by Laurence and Chris Paul; the Montrose restaurant is named after their two children.
