Holy Cheezus

Add Raclette NYC to your To-Do List. Do you like cheese? Stupid question, everyone loves cheese. (Not gonna lie, I’ve dreamt about cheese.) Do you find yourself trolling through the Instagram hashtag #cheeseporn?

If you said yes and started sweating, keep reading..

If you answered ‘no’ to either question, in the wise words of Regina George, “you can go shave your back now.”

What is “Raclette”?
Raclette is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese. It is most commonly used in a Swiss/French dish that consists of melting/broiling the top of the cheese and scraping it onto a plate of potatoes, cornichons, pickled onions and any type of cured meat (my favorite is prosciutto).

Usually, a raclette dish arrives at your table like the picture above. What sets Raclette NYC apart from any other place serving the dish is this…


They bring the cheese to your seat and physically scrape it over your plate. LIKE OMG I CAN’T EVEN DEAL!  Now watch it in semi-slow motion.

Moral of the story… You need to go to Raclette NYC!

Down side of the story… The restaurant only holds about 14 seats in total and they’re currently booked through June.
