Murray's Cheese: All that?

danna | Aug 15, 2008 06:09 AM

At the end of my recent trip, we stopped by Murray's to stock up on cheese for the trip home. I was not adventurous, and asked the cheese guy for his best examples of a gruyere and manchego. I also picked an aged gouda off the counter. Each of these cheeses bored me and were IMHO not as good as the ones I get at Whole Foods here in SC, and certainly not as good as what I've bought at D&D in the past. Only the aged goat the clerk picked for me (that I promptly forgot the name of) was excellent.

I've been to Murray's before, but at that time I got all cheeses I was unfamiliar with, so I really can't say how they compared.

So, did I just have an "off" day? Is Murray's the best cheese in Manhattan as I've been led to believe? Or is it for tourists (like me)?
