Murray's Cheese

    Many locales are credited as being New York City “institutions” and the appellation is not always justified. Sometimes, however, it totally is. Enter Murray's Cheese. Started in 1940 by a Jewish immigrant who'd served in the Spanish Civil War, this Village landmark has become a go-to destination for cheese addicts from all over the city and the world. Indeed, Murray's is one of those vaunted, wait for it . . . , institutions that New Yorkers love and tourists often hear about long before they hit the Island. (Writing about this place even feels a little superfluous, like telling the Paris-bound that they should check out the Louvre.) A big part of the store's success can be attributed to Rob Kaufelt, who bought Murray's around 1990 and began to stock up on, as he puts it, “the really good stuff.” The list of that really good stuff includes cheeses imported from France, Italy, Spain, England, Ireland and Switzerland, as well as the crème de la crème from New York and other US cheese States. Whether you're seeking an earthy chunk Tomme Crayeuse from Savoie, or a block of extra-sharp cheddar from upstate, you'll find it at Murray's. You'll also find a large assortment cured meats, olives and olive oils, and a slew of other antipasti favorites. Murray's also has an outlet in Grand Central Station, which more than one commuter has described as "whey cool".Show lessRead more
