Presentation is as important as flavor in some ways, and can really make the difference between idle snacking and high-class hors d'oeuvres. The Radiant Royals is on top in part because it's so large, and also because it includes a wine key, bottle ring, and space to store both of them -- and nothing goes better with cured meat and fancy cheese than a bottle of fermented grape juice. If you don't need quite as much room, the CTFT, Widousy, and Toscano Concavo are worthwhile options. The Landeluxe is worth a look because it's actually two trays in one, just be careful with the stone part, as it's not exactly the most durable thing in the world. The Cuisine Wonders is one of the few all-slate models to come with cheese tools, and would work just as well for sushi night as for a fromage feast. The Zelancio is another highly attractive choice thanks to its use of natural marble.
For a slightly different circular aesthetic, check out the Toscano Regalio, Toscano Circo, or Picnic at Ascot Vienna. The first is a three-level design that provides more real estate than pretty much all the rest, while the second is made essentially for personal use, and its reliable swiveling hinge makes it easy to store all the tools. The Picnic at Ascot folds down to a particularly compact size, so it's great for taking to the park, as its name suggests.
