Best of Boston

2017 Best Cheese Shop


You know you’re close to Eataly’s tempting cheese counter when you spot the larger-than-your-face wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano—and catch a whiff of formaggi in its many forms. Wait in line to sample and buy a wide variety of cheese domestic (Vermont blue) and international (Sicilian ragusano), or pull a wedge from the prewrapped selection. Either way, you won’t want to leave without catching a glimpse of the fresh-mozzarella station.
