Murray’s Cheese Bar is one of my favorite places to eat in New York City. Just a couple of doors down from it’s namesake, Murray’s Cheese Shop, this spin-off restaurant is the ideal place to spend an afternoon in the city. You could easily sit here for a few hours, sipping on wine and sampling the mouthwatering selection of cheeses they offer. The simple black, white and red decor is a nod to classic New York delis.
The restaurant offers a full menu with salads, sandwiches and entrees. However, I have to recommend the cheese platters. You can choose from one of the seasonal flights, order à la carte or have the cheesemonger create a platter based on your flavor profile.
We chose the latter and it could not have turned out more perfectly. One of the highlights are the unique, flavorful accoutrements that are expertly paired with the cheeses. With a flight of eight cheeses, every bite I tried was delicious. My favorite was the Cavemaster Reserve Greensward from Vermont. Paired with a curry-pickled cauliflower, the combination was irresistible.
