And now choosing the cheese course instead of dessert is an $18 up-charge. 

I'm really glad I had the chance to go here a few times before the prices got crazy...can't see myself going back. 

Good thing you aren't staying in the Claiborne House. :)

But.... you can have as many cheeses as you would like. Not quibbling with you about prices, but the lack of restriction does provide some more value.

Last time I was there we were told to pick 5 or 6, if I remember correctly.

Either way, I just find something distasteful about a $18 upcharge during a $238 meal.  

I understand a big tasting menu upcharge for a super special ingredient...a perfect white truffle, real Kobe beef, etc., but adding a small (relatively speaking) upcharge for something that has always been included just strikes me the wrong way. 

Maybe Cameron just wanted a big raise.

I hear you - I still remember being offered still or sparkling water at Il Laboratorio and being annoyed at a rather arbitrary water charge at the end of the evening (all bottles were shared among tables - I guess the charge was split?).

Last month we could pick however many cheeses. Would be a bummer if that's changed, or not consistently applied. Cameron was much less engaging on our last trip, though. Maybe having an off night.
