The cheese plate at Matt's in the Market will change your posture on dessert.

When it comes to people’s tastes in dessert, some lean sweet, others lean salty and a few, like me, lean cheesy. So when I’m hoping to stretch the night for one more drink and I’m in the mood for a little “dessert,” the cheese plate at Matt’s in the Market does the trick. Five artisanal international and local cheeses—an assortment that changes often—are arranged on a wooden cutting board and served at their irresistible room-temperature best. And they’re accented with extra and equally ever-changing accompaniments, which may include house-made crackers, thick fig mostarda, nutty shortbread cookies, toasted nut breads and best of all, a chocolate truffle, meant to pair with the robust blue cheese. It’s a plate so layered and intriguing, it just might change your posture on dessert.
