“Cheesemongers are categorically zealous,” declares the website for beloved local cheese shop Antonelli’s, located next door to the Hyde Park Bar & Grill in none other than Hyde Park itself: “Their counters are their pulpits, and they live to share the gospel.” Thanks to the shop’s dizzying array of fromage — all heartily explained by the very friendly and uber-knowledgeable staff — and its chocolates, olives, charcuterie and fresh baked breads, their words are perfectly accurate: it’s practically a religious experience to walk through its doors and take in all the sights. Along with the many fine eateries around town who proudly serve Antonelli’s finest on their cheese boards, all we can say is: consider us converted.
4220 Duval Street (between Hyde Park Bar & Grill and Dolce Vita)
