At the ART Lounge, just say ‘cheese’

The $7, late night, all-you-can-eat-cheese (and crackers and tapenade and antipasto) spread is a good topper to a night on the town.

Our happy hour this week tests your resolve to stick to that weight-loss resolution. It’s the $7, late-night, all-you-can-eat cheese deal at the ART Lounge, inside the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle.

It’s evil. Just pure evil.

It’s a spread of gourmet cheeses, flanked by tapenade and antipasto. There are crackers and crusty bread to accompany the salty noshes and wines (on tap for $6-$8).

The cheese spread varies weekly, with a variety of European and regional offerings. Last week’s spread included a creamy truffle goat cheese and a nutty Spanish Manchego. And a glass of sweet white with that briny, buttery blue cheese was just heavenly.

The cheese spread is a Four Seasons staple. It used to be more of a feast and a sensory overload with two dozen blocks and wedges of cheese. It also used to cost more.

Now, the spread features about a dozen cheese varieties. For only $7? It’s just about perfect after the symphony or a show downtown.
