New bar Cheese Room opening soon in Capitol Hill

The name says it all. At this new cheese bar you’ll find cheese in all forms — grilled cheese, Dungeness crab and cheese ravioli, cheese platters, plus a cozy atmosphere for enjoying the company of whoever you bring to eat with.

Look, it ain’t easy being cheesy — so we’re leaving it up to Capitol Hill’s new Cheese Room to take the lead there.

The new “cheese bar” is set to open Wednesday, May 15 with a menu of — you guessed it — rotating selections of various cheeses and wines from domestic and international producers. It also plans to have an Italian-inspired dining menu with dishes like veal ragu bianco + a grilled cheese sandwich with a tomato bisque.

It’s moving into Macchiavelli’s former location at 1215 Pine St. and will be run by the same people behind Korean steakhouse Meet Korean BBQ — Chef Heong Soon Park and Scott Han.

In addition to lots of tasty things happening in the kitchen and behind the bar, the new space also boasts windows aplenty (perfect for people-watching or making bypassers jealous of your cheese wares) and cozy vibes to fit most occasions.
