We passed by few times in front of Indulge, a Wine Bar located North Milwaukee street and decided to try it (it opens at 4:30pm). Started in 2008, they serve wine, cheese, charcuterie and chocolates! What a program! When we went there, there was a wine tasting and we tried some very good Parducci wine, especially the pinot noir...
The decor is modern, clean and classy, with a dark setting, and the service was good. They offer a nice menu where you can mix cheese and meat! Our pick was:
- Wisconsin artisan cheese plate: composed of Sartori Rosemary Asiago, Carr Valley 4-year cheddar, Sartori Sarvecchio parmesan and Carr Valley cocoa Cardona.
- Tripple cheddar cheese plate: Snow white goat cheddar, Carr valley 4-year cheddar (again???), applewood smoked cheddar (divine!).
- Truffle shuffle plate: started with a box of truffle popcorn (they should try that in movie theaters!), truffle tremor cheese (very strong), foie gras mousse pate and truffle mousse plate.
I think there is a misconception about cheddar cheese and it is probably because people only try the processed one! A good aged cheddar on a piece of bread or in Mac and Cheese is delicious! I think I am hungry just thinking about it!
Anyway, if you like the concept of Wine Bar, sharing plates, cheese and charcuterie, go to Indulge and...indulge!
Enjoy (I did)!
