I'll be visiting NYC and surrounding areas over the summer in search of cheese shops and restaurants that deal exclusively/impressively with cheese.
I'll be headed to Artisanal, but I was wondering if you folks could recommend cheese stores/havens. I live in a metropolitan area with Dean & Deluca, Whole Foods and the basics. So I'm looking for an exclusive NYC experience. Mom and pop operations or wherever you buy good quality cheese.
So, where should I go? If you could provide ballpark areas with the names of places (i.e. Cheese Shop in Midtown), that'd be great. Also, if any places specialize in one type (say mozzarella) please mention that. :)
