We're inundated with new restaurants but, as far as I know, we haven't got a proper cheese shop. I know Carol Gardens has a number of fine latticini for fresh mozzarella and ricotta, Sahadi has a decent selection of pre-wrapped cheeses, and Staubitz does pretty well for a butcher shop. But what I crave is a place where you can go in and really have A DIALOGUE about cheeses from all over the world, a place to learn and to grow. Like Murrays, for instance. Or, dare I say it, the cheese counter at Dean and DeLuca.
Please someone let me know if I'm overlooking someplace, and if you're reading this and you're looking to open a business on Smith Street, think Cheese.
