Everyday I'd pass this cheese shop wondering what it was like inside, last week I finally had a few spare minutes and decided to check it out. I was surprised to see that Beecher's Handemade Cheese was more than a cheese shop, and was a really lovely cafe/restaurant, which during the night turns into "The Cellar", a basement bar scene for people 21 and over. Originating in Seattle, Kurt Beecher Dammeier branched out to NYC in 2008 where he opened the Flat Iron location. The title doesn't lie when it says "Handmade Cheese", and they are able to prove it! Half of the bottom floor is taken up by their cheese making kitchen, where customers can sit on stainless steel milk cans while watching the product go through the age old process. With an ever changing menu, Beecher's offers an array of different items, such as panini's, pastas, soups and especially tasty coffee!
