2011 BEST Cheese Shop

Formaggio Kitchen

As they’ve flourished and expanded, this Cambridge fixture and its smaller South End sibling have become more epicurean temples than mere cheese shops, stocked with a mouthwatering array of prepared foods, impossible-to-find spices, small-production wines, and more. But old loves die hard, so we still head in specifically for the expertly presented fromag—soft, cakey Spanish Leonora; salty Greek Kasseri; and the nutty Bra Duro from Piedmont—and for staffers who are eager to offer samples and opine on their new favorite raw-milk tomme.
