In 1991 Rob Kaufelt, a.k.a. The Big Cheese, bought Murray Greenberg’s original neighborhood cheese (and more) store, founded in 1940, from then owner Louis Tudda. About ten years ago, Rob attacked low-fat CW with an arsenal of artisanal European cheeses, and the rest is cheese history. Murray’s array of cheeses, as many as 200, now including one of the largest selections of American farmstead and artisan cheeses in the City, is matured in his own caves, below the Bleecker Street store, and sold by a knowledgeable and patient staff who freely offer tastes and good advice.
