Cheese – milk’s leap toward immortality
– Clifton Fadiman

A newcomer to the South End, Five Horses Tavern offers serious comfort food in a cool old world tavern environment.  I love the feel of this welcoming not so little place and now I have been a couple of times, I feel it’s a good time to give it a review, which will follow soon.

What I am going to share right now is the dish I have had each of my visits and that is the Grilled Brie.  I have been thinking about this dish all week.  This appetizer is just fantastic in every way.  Gooey, warm brie sprinkled with sweet, smooth marcona almonds and bites of pomegranate seeds.  Spread generously on grilled focaccia, it absolutely hits the cheese spot.  Loved this app!
