Cheese shops in lower Westchester

  • r

Are there any good cheese shops in the lower Westchester area? Specifically around New Rochelle, but I can travel a bit for cheese.

  1. Auray in Larchmont. Expensive, but excellent.

    1. I second Auray in Larchmont. They carry a lot of French cheeses since there's a large French community in the town. Also Italian, English, and Spanish cheeses along with ham, sausage, bread, etc. Owners Warren Reed and Dale Saffir are exceptionally knowledgeable about cheese and will help you in your selection. Their prices have gone up due to the dollar's slide against the Euro, but the quality of their cheeses is better than Murray's in Grand Central

      1. You can also try the Cheesery in Hartsdale. Really, though, they are most famous for their flavored cream cheese spreads, which I have tried over the years and found quite nice. I used to eat caviar, and their caviar and green onion cream cheese was always a hit at family/friend brunches. I know they have lots of other cheeses, but weight and cholesterol issues have kept me away from eating a lot of cheese. Also, believe it or not, Stew Leonard's in Yonkers has quite a nice selection of imported cheeses, including some nice English cheddars, and other more esoteric options. And you can always do some other food shopping while you're there.

        1. I just read an article in the journal news about a cheese store in Dobbs Ferry on Cedar Street. The name escapes me but I think it is fairly new.

          2. Auray Cheese Shop in Larchmont has an excellennt French-centric cheese selection (along with lots of other French staples for the large French community in town. They loan girolles and raclette machines if you buy the cheeses (tete de moine and raclette). It's on Palmer Ave.
