  • Murray's
    254 Bleecker St., 212-243-3289
    Named after long-ago proprietor Murray Greenberg, today Murray's blends past and present. The shop includes shades of the original wholesale butter and egg shop—by selling the everyday groceries that can save a resident with no time for a hunger pang. Meanwhile, cheeses take the spotlight at this location, where the morsels are categorized by country and accompanied by an evocative product description. The endearing cheese geeks behind the counter are more than happy to supplement the written knowledge on display, and aficionados can even sign up for one of the shop's cheese classes. Murray's is not only a mecca of flavor and texture, but also an ivory tower of cheese edification.
