Burrata cheese

umai Sep 7, 2008 11:47 AM

In search of salty, gooey goodness. Anyone know where to buy it? Or restaurants where it is a regular on the menu? I've tried Dean and Deluca but they're always sold out.

    Thanks to all of you who have replied. In california, i lived just a few minutes from a place that had it in all the time, so i had gotten spoiled. Nice to know i can find it pretty easily here with your help.

      Fairway in Red Hook sells it and it is really good. Not sure about the other Fairways, but I assume they would as well.

        I have regularly seen it at 74th Street Fairway and Citarella. It tends to get mushy/mealy very quickly, so it would be good to find out which day they receive thier orders. Unfortunately, like mozzarella, it really does not travel well.

        Agata & Valentina located at E.79th & 1st Avenue usually has burrata cheese.

              Di Palo's only have burrata cheese on Sat and Sun. I have seen burrata cheese at the Whole Foods on Bowery, but I don't know if they always carry it, and it is more expensive than at Di Palo's .

                Thats' right, they only come on Saturdays at Di Palo's, but at $7.99 a lb. and comparable in price to the ones at Murray's and Ideal, and without the OP specifying when he/she needs it, I thought I'd throw it in anyway.

                BTW, Murray's brings it in on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

                Also, and this is for the OP, 2 weeks ago I had a terrific appetizer of fresh burrata and roasted figs at Lupa. I don't remember if it is areular menu item, but it was the highlight of my meal.

                  Citarella, I think.

                  Also saw it at Bedford Cheese in Williamsburg.
