st. james cheese company

after marty finished his last exam of the year yesterday (!!!), we headed over the st. james cheese company for sandwiches.
i encountered this beautiful tree on the way there... moving on:
st. james opened about a year after katrina. the owners, "cheesemongers" as they call themselves, moved to new orleans from london with their son to open this shop in uptown.
the incredible selection of artisanal meats and cheeses aside, the menu boasts delicious pressed sandwiches, huge salads, cheese boards and charcuterie samplings put together in the kitchen on the chef's whim. this time i tried the beecher's cheddar - smoked turkey, basil, tomato and avocado on ciabatta.
just looking at this picture of yesterday's sandwich makes me want to go back! it's raining today in new orleans so i'm guessing people might be turned off by st. james' primarily outdoor seating. this might be wishful thinking.

p.s. st. james has a blog! i am DEFINITELY signing up for their cheese school. stinky cheeses, here i come!
