“Cheesemonster Studio is thrilled to announce its grand opening on Thursday, April 11, at 713 Kennedy St. NW.

The cozy space includes a full service catering prep kitchen for its signature artisan cheeseboards, cafe seating for 20 for cheese and charcuterie boards as well as wine and beer service Thursday-Saturday evenings 4-10pm, and space for private events and classes.
All of our products are carefully sourced from producers with whom Bergen Phillips has created lasting relationships over the years, and will feature local options whenever possible. The Leonards will be adding a robust seasonal beverage program with by the glass and bottle, as well as craft beer and non-alcoholic options.
The Studio is also a venue for local cheesemongers and beverage professionals to gather and deep dive into aspects of the industry they feel passionately about sharing with customers and each other.
Finally, being a part of a neighborhood community is very important to the concept. Creating a place for neighbors enjoy exceptional food and drinks with their friends and family is of the utmost importance. The team looks forward to being able to contribute in a positive way to the community.
