Cheese is my favorite food group, making Murray’s my #1 spot for all things brie, cheddar and gruyere (and everything in between). Planning a picnic in the park? Go to Murray’s. Looking for a delicious spot for a take-out lunch. Go to Murray’s. Decided to stay in the Airbnb and want to put together a charcuterie board? Go to Murray’s!
This cheese shop has such an amazing selection of meats, pantry items, smoked fish and pre-made entrees and salads. They even make made-to-order sandwiches. My favorite is their Murray Melts, which are the most savory grilled cheese sandwiches. I order mine with bacon and tomato added. Just watching them make it gets my mouth watering. The shop also provides samples and the staff is happy to make friendly cheesy conversation.
Not near this Greenwich Village location? No problem. There are also smaller Murray’s locations inside Grand Central station and in Long Island City.
