Goat cheese pairs nicely with watermelon—I know cause Remy the Rat told me. Although the pro chef from Ratatouille isn’t working in the kitchen of Gianmarco’s, they have mastered the art of antipasti. Try their warm pistachio-crusted goat cheese on a salad with watermelon and balsamic.

6. Refresh—Farm Bowl + Juice
