If you're looking for some really tasty food in New York , don't miss Murray's Cheese shop . The store has a wide selection of cheeses such as Camembert, Brie, Feta, Cheddar, Mozzarella, blue cheese and much more. There are many different flavors and the selection represents the best cheeses from the entire continent. Murray's Cheese shop is not only one of the tastiest places for special food, but also worth an experience. Because the store has an interesting skill. This sweet shop has been around since 1940 and opened its first branch in Greenwich Village ( address: 254 Bleecker St., between 6TH & 7TH Avenue ). This shop in New York already made a name for itself back then because it offered cheeses from all over the world right from the start. In 2000 the time had come and a second store was opened in the Grand Central Station Terminal . And since 2012 there has even been additional seating there by opening its own restaurant . There are now 350 Murray's Cheese shops across America . When you stand at the counter while waiting, it becomes increasingly difficult to decide which types of cheese to choose, but the staff is well trained and will be happy to give you tips on your selection.
The quality of the cheese is very high and freshness can also be ensured by the fact that the goods are usually not left in the display area for long, as a lot is sold.
Murray’s offers great gift packages . There are special occasions such as Valentine's Day, Christmas, Thanks Giving or even Easter. In addition to these great combinations and the great selection of cheese, you can also take courses here where you can learn everything you need to know about the different types of cheese. You can do this on site or online. Here's a little foretaste:

There are five different combinations from which you can choose. These will be sent to the online course within America. However, you have the opportunity to visit such a course on site or simply buy one of these compilations on site and try it out.
