Cheese Plates at the Swift Half

While spending an Saturday afternoon checking out the shops and scene at the new Piazza at Schmidt’s, I got a little hungry. Not a lot hungry, but beer and a snack hungry. Already a fan of the Good Dog and Grace, I decided to check out the legendary bartender/owner Fergie’s new spot, the Swift Half. With generous outdoor seating and the luck of a Phillies game on the Jumbotron, my friend Ryan and I ordered up some hoppy beverages and I took a look at the menu.

While there are a few tasty looking vegetarian options – a beet and goat cheese sandwich, a vegetarian shepards pie and petite cucumber finger sandwiches, I had a few options, but the cheese plates really caught my eye. For just $5 you can choose a lovely cheese, paired with sliced baguette, fresh fruit and accoutremonts. I choose the boucheron, a French goat’s cheese that is interestingly firm on the inside and softer on the outside. It came paired with fresh blueberries and a thick blueberry sauce. A generous slice of delicious cheese, spreadable fruit, and just $5? I’m hooked.
