Best Cheese store in Manhattan?

I am looking for Crémier de
Chaumes, but can't seem to find it in the Manhattan cheese stores. Any recommendations as to a store that might carry it?

  1. Murray's, Eataly and Fairway all have excellent cheese selections. Have you checked any of these places?

    1. Murray's the best bet probably. Also I like Ideal cheese shop.

        Because this cheese is a fairly hard to find French cheese, I'd call ahead, inquire about availability first.

        1. Can you tell us where you've already been? Have you asked if a store can special order some for you?

          1. I can't speak for that cheese in particular, but I second Murray's and will add the Bedford Cheese Shop on Irving Place. That shop has some amazingly well-curated merchandise - lovely shop.

              Bedford Cheese is a great store. Ideal, too.

              Does Saxelby's still run a counter at Essex St. Market?

                Yes, and there's another cheese vendor there too, so it's worth a look.
