An interlude between the creatively titled “journey” and “afterlife” courses, Kai Restaurant's cheese course fits in with the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star eatery's Southwestern yet global theme. The course includes two to four artisan cheeses such as Camembert and five-year-aged Gouda. Served as part of the seven and 13 course tasting menus — or à la carte — the cheeses are a fitting prelude to Kai’s whimsical desserts. While local Arizona cheeses typically aren’t highlighted in the cheese course, they are featured elsewhere on the menu, such as the heavenly heritage tomato tart.
