For times when you need to run in, grab cheese and host a party that same night, Stinky BKLYN has you covered. The small Chelsea outpost of the Brooklyn shop has a case of around 40 cheeses ready to grab and go, house-made candied maple-bacon peanuts, spicy jalapeño pimento cheese, bread and, most important, growlers of beer. You could ring ahead and have a platter made, but then you wouldn’t be able to try one of its dozens of sandwiches, including a taleggio-fig-speck one that’ll blow your mind, or discover its Rice Krispies Treats studded with Golden Grahams. The selection at the Brooklyn shop is a bit wider, but the vibe remains the same: relatable, comforting and welcoming. One pro tip for the Chelsea location: You get 10 percent off wine from next door when you purchase any cheese.

This is a review for the one in Brooklyn on Smith Street, which is awesome and has everything you need to throw a solid cocktail hour at your house. 

Cheese? Obviously. Salumi. Done. Crackers/flatbreads/bread/other vehicles for cheese? Heck yes. Dips/sauces/jams/accompaniments? In there. Dessert? Yup.

Murray's is still my favorite, but Stinky is pretty damn perfect.
