Best of Boston

2013 Best Cheese Shop

Formaggio Kitchen

Formaggio features a carefully considered yet seemingly endless array of marbled blues, sharp cheddars, and runny Robiolas, some of it kept in underground “caves” built to duplicate the conditions of the natural European caverns where cheeses are traditionally aged. You’ll find a great selection of other high-end groceries, too, but just try walking out the door without an expertly wrapped wedge of fromage in your bag—it simply can’t be done.
