Pick & Cheese | Conveyor belt cheese restaurant
Most cheese is pasteurised.
But this cheese goes the extra step of literally going past your eyes, too.
This is Pick & Cheese, London’s (and the world’s) first cheese conveyor belt restaurant. It’s opening in Covent Garden this September, and it comes to us from the people behind The Cheese Bar in Camden, so it’s got a solid pedigree behind it. You’ll find it inside the Seven Dials Market Market, putting it a stone’s throw from Neal’s Yard cheese shop, who we can only hope will not throw any actual stones.
How will it work? Well, the idea is fairly simple: a 40-meter long Yo! Sushi-style conveyor belt rolls past carrying tantalising plates of cheese, each paired with a unique condiment, and each covered with a miniature glass cloche. The plates are all handmade and colour-coded for price, and when the meal’s done, your waiter will tot up what you ate by checking the dishes you’ve accumulated.
The cheeses will be all British, and the selections so far include the likes of coolea & hazelnut brittle, and fresh ricotta with sherry-infused cherries. If you want something grilled, you can get some “off belt” toasties, and they’ve even got cheese-flavoured ice cream to finish.
NOTE: Pick & Cheese is due to open at the Seven Dials Market on September 7th. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can find out more at their website right HERE.
