    Picholine and Artisanal have a large selection and you can order as many cheeses as you want.

      I'd probably check out Murray's Wine and Cheese Bar, from the people who do Murray's Cheese.

      Artisanal is a good call, I've had their catering before.

        How about a specifically Italian cheese plate? Rather, I'd like to order that plate (if it exists somewhere), and have it served with olive oils and bread.

        In other news, sometimes I'd order a cheese plate just because it also came with various spreads and breads. I think Cafe Grey (used to be in the TimeWarner Center) offered it.

          SD26 does a great job with Italian cheeses and salumi. As far as all cheeses go and if the OP is referring to a cheese plate as part of a meal it's hard to beat Picholine and equally great but more casual is of course Artisanal. If it's just a cheese plate without a meal you could still do the bar/lounge area of Picholine.

            Thanks for the replies.

            Based on the name of the restaurant, does Picholine have an olive oil flight as well as a cheese plate? That's all I'd need.

              Not to my knowledge.

            'inoteca allows you to assemble an all Italian plate for a good price.

            Eataly is good.

              Haven't been in awhile, but Uva on the UES had a really generous one.
