Murray’s Cheese Bar, an offshoot of the esteemed cheese shop a few doors down, knows its stuff when it comes to the iconic grilled cheese sandwich: the Murray’s Melt is a straightforward but perfectly executed iteration of the classic. Served burnished slices of Pullman loaf, the shop’s secret blend of cheeses arrives hot and oozy, with the option to add ham or Nueske’s bacon.

yum yum and more yum! If you love cheese, this cheese bar is not to miss. 


I'm not a cheesemonger by any means, and I think that's why I've been desperate to go back to Murray's ever since I went a few weeks ago.  A Cheesemonger's Choice is a great way to have dinner - especially when paired with the extensive wine selection.  Speaking to the Cheesemonger who selected our plate was incredibly fascinating (I don't know how you become a cheesemonger, but I'm considering it) and everything he picked (based on what we liked/didn't like) was perfect.  I honestly can't remember the names of everything we ate since I was too in awe, but seriously - go here.  

This is a great little bar/restaurant!From the guys (literally) next door at Murray’s Cheese shop the food on offer is obviously cheese focused but there is more than just cheese!I’ve only really had the smaller plates but they were all amazing, the drinks are great too and the atmosphere is always on point!Definitely a good option among many on Bleecker!
