World's first cheese conveyor belt restaurant opens

If you like sushi boat restaurants, you're probably going to love this new conveyor belt eating establishment — completely devoted to British cheese — that has opened in London's Seven Dials Market. Pick & Cheese is the brainchild of fromage-fanatic and entrepreneur Matthew Carver who hopes to make local UK cheeses cool again.

Food & Wine:

[It's] a magical place where guests are seated around a 40-meter conveyor belt that slowly presents an assortment of more than 25 different cheeses, all produced by traditional British cheesemakers. Each well-curated cheese is paired with a complementary condiment, which can be anything from sticky pear jam to honeyed garlic to a traditional northern Eccles cake.

Cheese novices can choose a pre-selected cheese flight, while connoisseurs and more adventurous eaters can help themselves to a stoneware plate or two (or six, or 10) from the conveyor belt. Each plate is color-coded according to its price, which ranges from a £2.95 ($3.64) cream plate to a £6.10 ($7.54) yellow plate. (There's also an Off-Belt menu that includes the owner's signature Four Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich and pan-fried 'Angloumi,' their all-English take on Cypriot halloumi.)
