Murray's Cheese Transforms Its Old Cheese Caves Into A New Event Space

Murray's Cheese Transforms Its Old Cheese Caves Into A New Event Space


NEW YORK, NY
Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

For those loyal readers of Deli Market News, you probably know by now that I am a devoted fan of cheese. Therefore, my astonishment and wonder upon learning that Murray Cheese’s was opening up its own event space—titled The Leroy Room—was one for the ages (my squeal of excitement may have traveled through the airwaves all the way to New York).

Located in Greenwich Village, The Leroy Room looks like something out of the Slytherin common room. It was originally where some of the cheese shop’s well-known cheeses, such as its line of Cave Master cheeses, were developed, and yes people, if you hadn’t already guessed, The Leroy Room is underground.

Subterranean, covered in dark tile, and lit by candles, the cavern offers guided tastings, cocktail hours, and gourmet meals. According to the company’s website, the guided tastings take place in what was once the affinage room—where the cheese was aged—and the sessions “stimulate both the palate and the mind, encapsulating the full Murray’s experience.”

Not only will guests be able to learn about the history of different styles of cheeses in classes like “Discovering Cheese,” they can become proper cheese aficionados themselves with classes such as “The Perfect Pair: Cheese & Wine” and “Hands-on Mozzarella Making.” As Forbes reported, cocktail hour offers lucky guests seasonal offerings and interactive stations. Main meals are either served family-style or as three to five course meals—a task I will be more than ready to tackle when I venture to New York. Something about subterranean spaces makes my heart full—call it the Slytherin in me—and adding cheese only enhances the delight.
