If you like cheese like we like cheese – and, man, we really like cheese – there's no better place to get your goat (or sheep or cow) than Antonelli's, an artisan shop like no other in the ATX. The staff is devoted and expert, and their selection of delights – from the French Ossau-Iraty, an Old World semi-soft that is smoothly pungent, to a Wisconsin cheddar so nutty and fruity it'll blow your mind and your taste buds – is beyond compare. Come in for a taste – or two, or three – and leave with the knowledge that you'll be back, and soon (how else could you possibly build the perfect cheese board?).
