We Know Cheese

Murray’s is here because people have insatiable appetites. For delicious food. Moments of discovery. And people to share it all with.

Murray's Cheese was born in Greenwich Village in 1962, and the heart of our business still resides in New York City with many ways to experience Murray’s locally. At the counter, our cheese experts and mongers serve thousands of neighborhood regulars, commuters, and tourists every year at our three locations—the Bleecker Street flagship retail experience, a beloved neighborhood fixture, our shop in Grand Central Terminal, and our location in Long Island City.

For dining out, we operate two New York City restaurants: Murray’s Mac & Cheese, with fast casual fare located in our Bleecker Street store, and Murray’s Cheese Bar, a sit-down restaurant featuring cheese flights and dishes by expert mongers and seasoned chefs. Our Murray’s Cheese Bar location opened in Spring 2020, moving to it’s new home in Long Island City.

For those eager to learn more, we offer robust education and events programming and, for those looking to serve more, we provide catering of expertly crafted cheese boards and freshly made dishes. Oh, did we mention we also age our own cheese? Yeah, we do that too. We have state-of-the-art cheese caves in Long Island City.

Because we like to share, we wanted to bring our exceptional cheese to people outside of New York too. So, we made Murray’s products available online at and in-store with a curated selection of specialty cheese in more than a thousand Kroger and Kroger-owned stores nationwide (and, growing every day!). And, through our wholesale business, you might enjoy Murray’s cheese at more than 600 restaurants across the country.

Our Purpose

From our original neighborhood shops and grocery store counters to home delivery and sit-down dining, Murray’s is now available in more ways and places than ever before. Which is great, because it means more people can experience the transcendent pleasures of amazing cheese. We’re here because people have insatiable appetites. For delicious food. Moments of discovery. And people to share it all with. At Murray’s, we’re here to satisfy all three.

In the Community

Murray’s proudly gives back to the neighborhood that’s been our home since 1962. We couldn’t have done it without our community. Through Murray’s charitable giving, we support programs that align with our three central pillars: Wellness, Community, and Education. Through monetary and food donations, as well as volunteer efforts, we seek to provide meaningful change throughout New York City and beyond.


  • Wellness: We are committed to improving the wellness and overall health of our communities. Through volunteering and donating unused food to hunger concerned nonprofits like City Harvest, we strive to do our part in ending hunger in New York City.
  • Community: We’ve called Greenwich Village home for over 60 years, and are proud to support many local charitable organizations, such as Greenwich House and Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation. By sharing our cheese knowledge and donating products, we aim to enrich the health, social, educational and cultural life of our community.
  • Education: At Murray’s we provide education in many forms: at the counter, in our classrooms, and in many local city schools. By partnering with Wellness in the Schools, we teach cheese-centric classes to children in Manhattan, beginning many students on the lifelong journey of seeking out and enjoying sustainable, quality food.
