Asiate in Mandarin Oriental, New York serves an international cheese course with exquisite accompaniments, though it's not part of the restaurant's tasting menus. For an $18 supplement, you'll be treated to an international assortment of four cheeses, including an Italian Pecorino, a cow-goat blend from New York State; Valdeón (a creamy blue cheese from Spain); and a French cow’s milk cheese. Other favorites that have been offered in the past include La Peral, a light Spanish blue cheese made from cow’s milk; Casatica, a rich water buffalo selection from Italy; and Landaff, a creamy cow’s milk wedge from New Hampshire. A generous Port and dessert wine selection is available for you to pair with the cheeses, and the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant’s enthusiastic sommelier is able to assist with innovative suggestions to accompany your final course.
