A cheese monger that specializes in artisanal specialty cheeses. Located on the Upper East Side, this shop is the first NYC outpost of a shop that first opened in East Hampton, NY in 2008.
What's great: The shop has relationships with the cheese producers and so can vouch for how the cheeses are produced and kept.
What to know: They also sell crackers, jams and other foods that go well with cheese and have a nice menu of prepared foods for take-out or delivery.
