Block and Bottle, A New Fromagerie in Mystic

Looking for a serene spot far from the madding crowds of Mystic? Head to Block and Bottle, a new wine bar and cheese shop in the Standard building. Cases of carefully selected (and lots of local) cheeses greet you, but I say grab a seat at the bar or cafe and let the sommelier steer you to the perfect rose while you enjoy a board of cheese and charcuterie. Small plates like Salad Nicoise, Beef Tartare, French Ham & Cheese, and Spanish Meatballs are on offer if you’re feeling more than slightly peckish. This has always been my favorite way to snack (easy to find in France, not so much here), and this new place is perfect for a late afternoon snack or provisions for the boat. I grabbed some artfully tinned fish and those crazy Torres truffle chips to go, too.
