Mission Cheese has been on my to-eat list for quite some time. I finally made it there for dinner this week and loved it – very cute small space, beautiful bar, delicious cheese-centric menu (cheese flights, charcuterie, griled cheeses, mac and cheese…it goes on), great wine and beer selection. I especially enjoyed the California Gold (San Joaquin Gold, chevre, prosciutto, fig preserves) and Alotta Buratta (Belfiore burrata, cherry tomatoes, balsamic, basil) sandies. The only two pitfalls: they turn their grill off at 8 p.m. (and close at 10 p.m.), so if you’re out for a late dinner you’ll miss out on their sandwiches. Oh, and you have to bus your own tables? I don’t really get the point and it doesn’t bother me too much, but for such a small place, it’s sort of a strange policy.
