The Bedford Cheese Shop has returned to the Avenue of its origin in a brand new (and much larger) space further south down Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. The shop, which closed at the end of August to move to the new location, now looks more like its Manhattan sibling, leaving behind its cramped home of 10 years across from the new Whole Foods.
There's an expanded selection of specialty food products on offer, including It's It ice cream sandwiches from San Franciso; frozen ravioli from Brooklyn-based Pastosa; and lots of cheese adjacent products like bacon, eggs, chips, crackers, charcuterie, candy and pickled things. And the Australian feta now comes in buckets. Lord save us all.
The new location (which was formerly occupied by the overpriced Khim's Millenium Market) will also be offering tastings and classes, an expanded menu of prepared foods like sandwiches and salads, and the opportunity to collaborate with chefs to throw dinner parties.
And don't fret breeders: there's plenty of room for strollers.
