Murray's Cheese Bar Starts Serving Brunch
GREENWICH VILLAGE — Nothing says Sunday brunch like the cheesemonger's stinkiest selection.
"Cheese isn’t just for dinner, parties, picnics, snacking, breakfast or lunch anymore — it’s also for brunch," a spokeswoman for Murray's Cheese said in a statement this week.
The cheese-centric menu to be served Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. includes a sirloin burger topped with cheddar, gruyère, fontina, chèvre or brie, plus a fried egg and thick-cut bacon, served on an English muffin ($15).
Cheese lovers can also opt for two poached eggs served on an English muffin with ham and mushrooms, topped with a three-cheese fondue poured table side ($14).
The sweet menu options at the 264 Bleecker St. eatery include "The Elvis" French toast stuffed with bacon, peanut butter and caramelized bananas ($12).
A long list of cheeses will be available a la carte for $6 each, in categories that include fresh, soft-ripened, washed rind and blue.
Those looking for the cheesemonger's best can order the Week in Review, a plate featuring three of Murray's "absolute favorite cheeses of the week" for $14, according to the menu.
To wash all that cheese down, the eatery will serve orange, blood orange, pear and lychee mimosas ($9), as well as Stumptown coffee ($4).
