Day 499 : How to Save / How to Splurge Dispatch #20

People always ask me where my favorite places to buy cheese are in Manhattan and today I got to thinking about splurge worthy cheese shops in Brooklyn! For those of you who live in Brooklyn, far away from Murray's Cheese, Lucy's Whey, Saxelby Cheese and more, you want cheeseshops in your neighborhood as well, right?
If Williamsburg is the neighborhood you call home, then you should take yourself to Bedford Cheese Shop on its namesake avenue, Bedford Avenue at number 229. It's got a broad range of cheeses -- the classics, hard to find European cheeses, local greats, and more. An extensive selection that gives you the opportunity to spend lots of your hard earned dollars on yummy creamy delicacies.

But maybe you live in Boerum Hill or nearby? Then you must get yourself to Stinky Brooklyn, 261 Smith Street -- perhaps you should stop on by on Sunday when there is 2011 Stinkfest, a cheese eating contest of epic proportions! Stinky Brooklyn to me has a small town feel - a great selection of European and American classics. Stinky's selection is smaller than Bedford's but that doesn't mean that it isn't worth making the trek to both, even if you live in Manhattan.

Each boasts plenty of splurge worthy cheeses -- one geared towards the hipsters of Williamsburg and one to the young professionals and families of Boerum Hill/Cobble Hill/etc. I must find out about the cheese shops of Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island for our next How to Save/How to Splurge dispatch!
