Best Cheese Plate

What is the best most generous cheese plate in the city?

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

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

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

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