Murray's Cheese

Food & Drinks in West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District

Founded in 1914, this is one of New York’s best cheese shops. Owner Rob Kaufelt is known for his talent for sniffing out devastatingly delicious varieties from around the world. You’ll find (and be able to taste) all manner of fromage, be it stinky, sweet or nutty, from European nations and small farms in Vermont and upstate New York.

There are also prosciutto and smoked meats, freshly baked breads, olives, antipasto, chocolate and all manner of goodies for a gourmet picnic – plus a counter for freshly made sandwiches and melts. Murray’s also has an eat-in Cheese Bar a few doors down, where you can feast to your heart's content.
