St James Cheese

After training at the famous London cheese shop Paxton and Whitfield, Richard Sutton brought his knowledge of blues, cheddars, and chèvres to New Orleans, creating St James Cheese Company. St. James boasts the best selection of cheeses in New Orleans and a case full of pâté, sausage, and cured meats. It didn’t take them long to realise that they had the fixings for some of the most creative sandwiches in town, like mozzarella with salami and basil pine pesto or Emmental with ham and grilled mushroom. The patio outside has become a weekend gathering spot for families, groups of young professionals, and older couples from the neighbourhood. Pick up a bottle from the wine shop next door, and St. James will provide the glasses. A few blocks from the St. Charles streetcar line, it’s a great stop for visitors who want something lighter after days of deep-fried New Orleans fare.
