A cheese by any other name would smell...delicious. Absolutely delicious. For anyone who loves cheese more than they probably should, here are the places that you have to visit when you're in New York.

1. French Cheese Board.

41 Spring St. (Mulberry St.)

This cool and contemporary space is a cheese lover's heaven! Enjoy French cheeses and cooking lessons in this new home to French cheese, and walk away feeling more knowledgable and (and in love with cheese) than you ever thought possible. The French Cheese Board looks like an art gallery and offers a changing selection of all things cheese. Better yet, their amazing wine and cheese pairing sessions will make you the go-to cheese connoisseur at your next party!

2. Murray's Cheese.

254 Bleeker St. (Between 6th and 7th Aves) 

A trip to Greenwich Village just wouldn't be complete without stopping in for a cheese tasting or two. Murray's Cheese finds the most delicious cheese, meat and specialty grocery items from around the world and puts them all in one place. If you're looking for a sit-down meal, their signature Murray’s Classic Mac & Cheese is everything you've ever dreamed of and so worth stopping in. In case you need more to satisfy your cheese cravings, they also offer a three-day cheese bootcamp. Yes, really.

3. Eataly NYC. 

200 5th Ave

Two words: handmade mozzarella. Is there really anything else that needs to be said here? This Italian marketplace offers a taste of Italy for every mood. I've easily spent hours scouring Eataly NYC sampling different cheeses, learning about the different products and enjoying the overall electric atmosphere that always seems to be so prevalent. 

One of the coolest things to see at Eataly NYC is the daily breakdown of different cheeses by their expert cheese mongers!

4. East Village Cheese.

80 East 7th St. (Between 9th and 10th St.)

This cash-only establishment is a diamond in the rough that is as un-pretentious and no-nonsense as it gets. If you're not careful, there's almost a 100% chance you'll miss their weather-beaten, handwritten sign. Here you'll find anything from feta to triple cream brie for ridiculously low prices. If you're on a budget, this is THE place to visit.
