in West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District

Founded in 1940 by Spanish Civil War veteran Murray Greenberg, this is one of New York’s best cheese shops. Former owner (now 'advisor') Rob Kaufelt is known for his talent for sniffing out the best curds from around the world: you’ll find (and be able to taste) all manner of fromage, aged in cheese caves on site and in Queens.

You'll also find charcuterie, freshly baked breads, olives, antipasto, fresh pasta, chocolate and all manner of goodies for a gourmet picnic – plus a counter making sandwiches and melts such as the 'Classic Italiano' (Genoa salami, provolone and sweet peppers on ciabatta). Murray’s also has an eat-in Cheese Bar a few doors down, where you can feast to your heart's content.
