Say Cheese!

Art and Eating in SF

Every year when we do the Delicious show we try to find new ways to bring the world of food and art together. In the past we have had some of our neighbors in the food business provide tastings, or talk about what they do. This year we are posting a little story about some of the tastiest places we love.


Cheese Plus

Or as we call it, Ray's, is great source for fine cheeses, wines, and a plethora of gourmet ingredients. If you've ever paged through the Zingerman's catalog and were curious about trying some exotic tasty thing, there's a good chance you can find it at Cheese Plus.

They have ingredients to put together a nice dinner, including a selection of fresh produce. We love the bags of arugula that seem to expand as you open them. If you don't feel like cooking, the sandwich selection is a quick and tasty option, and you can sit at the sidewalk tables and parklet to enjoy dining al fresco (no relation to the painting technique involving lime plaster and pigment).
