Review: Froma

Froma may be short for "fromagerie," but this little store on Melrose is so much more than a dairy. It sells fine European foodstuffs and wines, including those of Olivier Pithon and his brother Jo, as well as an array of cheeses, charcuterie, and a dine-in menu of soups, salads, panini and other little goodies.

I had lunch there, enjoying four different kinds of bruschette and a panini with bresaola, arugula, lemon juice and chevre. It was all delicious. I can just imagine spending a whole day at the counter here, starting with an espresso and some banana bread in the morning, continuing with a panini or salad in the afternoon, and enjoying a glass of wine in the evening.

For more on what there is to see and eat at Froma, take a look at my review:
