East Village Cheese

40 3rd Ave. New York, NY 10003 | Noho | 212-477-2601

Location Description:

Itas everything a cheese shop should be: cramped, smelly, exhaustive in its collection, underpriced. The shop is utilitarian, not cute or fancy. There are some rulesahalf-pound minimum, no tasting allowed, and cash onlyabut the prices are literally insane. They run unbelievable specials, thanks partly to cheese importers who over-buy and then call East Village Cheese for help. Itas also one-stop party shopping (except for the booze part), since they carry an array of crackers, olives, deli meats, and bread, too.
