Where can I find burrata cheese?

I'm trying to find a place where I can by burrata cheese, mozzarella's cousin. Anyone know where to find some?

  1. I know for sure you can get it a Ideal Cheese on 51st and 1st. Probably Murray's too.

      I saw it Ideal about two weeks ago, FWIW.

    2. We buy them at the exact same places that tbear posted above - Ideal on 1st Ave and at Murrays in Grand Central Market. They're usually freshly flown in from Italy.

        Also have seen it at Bel Canto in the Chelsea Market

          If you happen to be up on Arthur Ave. in the Bronx, Calandra's Cheese should have it.

          1. re: Stuffed Monkey

            It is indeed a regular feature at the Italian shop in Chelsea Market. However, it is called Buon Italia.

            I've also bought it at DiPalo, and have watched it made fresh from curds at Agata & Valentina.

            We also buy burrata from Murrays in Grand Central Market.Burrata is a typical fresh cheese produce in Italy.Caseificio Olanda is based in Andria, in the south of Italy – Apulia and produce hand-made fresh cheese recalling tradionally handed down recipes.

          3. DiPalo's on Grand (at Mott St.)

              A few months ago, Lou, at DiPaolo's told me that they had started to make their own and normally have it on Saturday mornings.

            2. Murray's Cheese on Bleecker has it in the store about half the time- I shop there several times per week. I would say they get one shipment per week, which lasts two or three days.

                Isn't Murray's also in Grand Central? Either way the cheese shop in the terminal gets it on Fri or Sat.

                  Yes - that is Murray's - and I remember another poster getting it there (or was that you?).

                  1. re: MMRuth

                    LOL that was me, and you were very wonderful to help me find it! My husband picked it up on his way home from work.

                    1. re: SweetPea914

                      Yup- Murray's also has a very convenient outpost in GC. It's good to know that they get theirs fresh at the end of the week- thanks for the info.
                      EDIT- I should have mentioned that the Bleecker location did not appear to have any Burrata last night (Friday).

                      1. re: vvvindaloo

                        If I remember correctly, at GC, they were out on Friday and said they get their shipment on Saturdays. Bleeker probably also gets their shipment the same day. When my husband cheked on Monday it was back in stock.

                        1. re: vvvindaloo

                          I saw Burrata at Murray's on Bleecker today (Sat)

                2. Agata and Valentina also sells it. The trick is to ask when the shipment comes in and get it that day to maximize freshness. Better still, get DiPalo's house made version which does not have to travel from Campania!.
