Arthur Avenue's Calandra Cheese Sells Burrata's More Flavorful Cousin

Bronx Eats Chris E. Crowley 7 comments

Calandra's Cheese, the stoic Italian cheese shop, is an Arthur Avenue O.G., one of a few holdouts of a once solely Italian neighborhood that's diversifying every day. It's especially vital for its owner's insistence on quality; unlike other Arthur Avenue bakeries and restaurants, it doesn't rest on its ancestral laurels. The must-buy? Burrino, aged mozzarella stuffed with butter. More

Market Tours: Bedford Cheese Shop in Manhattan

Clara Inés Schuhmacher 1 comment

In the bizarre and expensive world of New York real estate, it seems counter-intuitive to move from Brooklyn to Manhattan in search of a bigger spot, but that's exactly what the Bedford Cheese Shop did. In July 2012, they opened a second—larger—location on Irving Place, in Gramercy. More

A Sandwich a Day Rebecca Simon 3 comments

The Grilled Kimcheese at newly-opened Porsena Extra Bar makes an enticing pun, and as it turns out, a tasty sandwich. The thick-cut griddled pullman bread is soft and buttery, the filling a mix of puréed kimchi that adds bright heat to nutty aged cheddar and creamy mayo. More

Murray's Cheese Bar in the West Village: A Tricky Concept, But A Good Restaurant

The Serious Eats Team 10 comments

"I'm glad we're here with you," whispered one dining companion as we stared down our menus. "Because I have no idea how I'd decide what to order here." Murray's Cheese Bar opened a few weeks back as the long-awaited restaurant companion to the legendary shop Murray's Cheese—easily one of the best places in New York to taste, learn, and buy whatever cheesestuffs strike your fancy. But of course, they were faced with an immediate quandary: how do you make whole meals out of cheese? The answer: yes, but meals of a very particular kind. More

Midnight Snack: Fondue and Its Ilk in the East Village

In the Midnight Hour Zachary Feldman 1 comment

Chances are high that if you're in any semblance of a relationship (real or imaginary), the days ahead are going to be filled with some combination of hand-holding, adoring stares, and breathless whispers. A guy or gal is bound to get hungry after so much endless romance, and one of the sexiest ways to refuel is fondue—or the Swiss art of shared cheese-dipping—and its many cultural counterparts. With a reputation for late nights and a number of different cuisines represented in the 'hood, the East Village offers a convincing argument for getting cheesy with the apple of your eye. More

The Vegetarian Option: Earl's Beer & Cheese

The Vegetarian Option Howard Walfish 2 comments

Tucked into a narrow stretch of Park Avenue, where the Metro North Railroad disappears underground, is where you'll find Earl's Beer & Cheese. The menu at Earl's changes seasonally, and currently features dishes like Mac and Cheese, Asian Gnocchi topped with cheese fries, and Earl's Eggo, a gourmet waffle with cheddar. You can wash down your food with any of the craft brews on tap or in cans; Earl's Beer & Cheese takes its name seriously. But the Mac & Cheese features shredded chicken, the gnocchi has ground beef, and that waffle is topped with foie gras and bacon along with those cheese fries. What is there for vegetarians? More
