NYC's Annual Winter Stinky Cheese Festival

It's NYC's Annual Winter Stinky Cheese Festival!! By Melissa Leaman

The Winter Stinky Cheese Festival returns to NYC with nine restaurants offering stinky cheese menus during their lunch and dinner service from now until March 12. Just follow your nose to Nice Matin, Marseille, Café D’Alsace, French Roast (Uptown & Downtown), Le Monde, L’Express, Maison or Pigalle where each of the chefs will be creating Stinky Cheese appetizers, entrees and desserts in addition to their regular menu. The menu items will feature over 20 cheeses, including Limburger, Taleggio, Epoisse and Stinky Bishop. Items not to be missed are the Limburger Steak Hache with vidalia onions and a fried egg at Nice Matin, the Alsatian Muenster Short Rib and potato tart at Marseille and the Roasted Figs Crumble with aged port, crème fraîche, cookies crumbs, and gratinée with Livarot at Café D’Alsace.
