Just got word from Sheri LaVigne that her cheese shop, The Calf and Kid, will open its doors for business Friday, April 23. The artisanal boutique is located in the Melrose Project, an urban marketplace positioned between Pike and Pine Streets on Capitol Hill.
Being quite the cheese proprietor, LaVigne plans to stock smaller, local offerings (Black Sheep Creamery, Blue Rose Dairy, Mt. Townsend Creamery) along with varieties from Italy and France, and there has been mention of Wisconsin and Vermont cheesemakers. Accompaniments such as olives, pâté, and crackers will be on hand, too.
LaVigne originally intended to set up shop last year; that didn’t pan out due to financial conflicts. Read about that here.
The Calf and Kid’s hours are Tues-Sat 11-7, Sun 12-6.
