We stopped at this restaurant for lunch and we were overwhelmed by the unusual combinations of food in their unique dishes. Don't be afraid to try things as they know how to combine amazing ingredients to produce the most unusual and delicious tastes. Great ,friendly service and we highly recommend it. You should book in advance as they get very busy over lunch.

The macaroni and cheese was delicious. The soup and salads were also excellent. We sat at the bar because the tables were all reserved on a wednesday night at 7pm. There is a nice outdoor seating area.

And that's rare.

Caseus (L. for "cheese") is a tiny bistro with a little cheese shop attached. We had lunch there, sitting outside on a cool but sunny day. Their specialties are artisanal breads, meats and cheeses.

Eating there requires a degree of faith on your part - they offer foods (oatmeal/orange/gingersnap butter served with fennel-rich bread, for example) that you've likely not encountered before and about which you might tend to be a bit skeptical. Our experience was that trust in their servers' opinions and their cooks' skill is well-rewarded. One of us had a field green and black quinoa salad with guanciale on the side, the other had mac 'n' cheese made with chevre, raclette, gruyere . . . (get back, Kraft!). Both choices felt venturesome to us and both were outstanding. We'd go back in a heartbeat.

Who knew that this quaint little place was a neighborhood gem! The food is INCREDIBLE - the flavors pretty much burst in your mouth - and of course the cheese is unbelievable! Its fresh - and tastes fresh - and the warm and knowledgable staff enhances the experience.

Make sure you have a reservation though, even for lunch, unless you don't mind sitting at the bar (we don't mind a bit) - can't wait to go back!
