If an appetizer, entrée and dessert aren’t enough to satisfy your hunger when dining at Sage, you might want to supplement it with the restaurant’s cheese course. Priced at $16 and served with apricot toast and seasonal accompaniments, you’ll enjoy a selection of American cheeses. When we visited the restaurant recently, we encountered a range of cow’s milk options like Hudson Red, a washed rind cheese from New York; the tangy Oregon Blue, made from raw milk; the rich and nutty Cabot Clothbound Cheddar from Vermont. What’s more, the desserts regularly list a cheese-centric plated dish, such as the recent blue cheese mousse with candy-stripe figs, crispy phyllo and a roasted walnut ice cream that perfectly blends sweet and savory. At the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, the cheese course is as well thought out as the rest of chef Shawn McClain’s new American menu.
