Staff very friendly and helpful. We told them what we liked and they gave us samples of the different types of cheeses. Although we didn't eat there for lunch, they had cheep lunches made with the cheeses. They know what they are doing! Thank you.

Did a quick stop by at Murray's Famous shop and tried a few of their cheeses: Manouri (Goat and Sheep) - A ricotta substitute that maintains a stronger milk flavor. Ewephoria Milk Gouda (Sheep) - A solid Gouda Tumbleweed 5 Spoke Creamery (Cow) - Good, a bit crumbling while remaining dense.

We had two Murray's Melts which were delicious. One of our party is gluten intolerant and her version of this sandwich was just as nice. We would recommend this to those who are gluten free and who love grilled cheese

We visited this well-known cheese store and were delighted with what we saw, tasted and bought. We had the good luck to meet Rob Kaufelt, the owner and had a wonderful discussion with him. The shop was very busy, but we managed to tour the entire place. A few doors down Bleecker Street there is a cheese bar owned by... More

Murray's has a great range of cheese plus gourmet snack foods, some bread and an olive bar. The place can get pretty crowded but the folks behind the counter are still helpful in selecting a cheese. The prices reflect the gourmet offerings so don't expect to buy a cheap cheese.

Wandering through Greenwich Village and came across this delightful cheese shop and deli! The choice of cheeses was staggering, including some from the UK which I didn't expect to see as sometimes quite hard to get them in the UK. The staff were on hand to offer advice and to help. Some of the other deli foods also very tempting.... More

From the moment you walk in you are drawn in and hooked. So many delicious cheeses to choose from. And if you don't know what you want, the knowledgeable staff behind the counter will help.

This establishment has a great deal of cheese and jam varieties from all over the world. It's like traveling the world without having to leave NYC for these special delicatessen! This location in NYC is located downtown and offers a small place to sit and taste your selection. They also have a "small pantry" section that has drinks and other... More

We went for Christine's class on Cheese 101 and enjoyed some amazing cheeses while learning a ton about cheese making history and present. They serve lots of wine with the class as well has some items for tasting. I would recommend this highly.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
