 What are some of your local items?
Our fresh bread is delivered from incredible New York City bakeries every morning. We also have some fabulous Finger Lakes wines and Hudson Valley cheeses. You can often find us at the Nyack or Piermont farmers markets stocking up on produce for the store. The best thing to know is that all the food we serve in the bistro is prepared right in the shop behind the cheese case—now that’s local! Wait, you have a bistro, too?
So many people tell us they didn’t know we have a
quaint little restaurant in the back of our store! Our 12-seat bistro is open Thurs–Sun, 11 a.m.– 4 p.m. (reservations recommended but not required). You will have an incredible time eating our cheese and meat and drinking our wine! We do private parties in the space, and we are gearing up for our cheese and wine classes and tastings.
Joe, tell us about your side hustle “Joey G’s Nyack Food Tours.”
There are so many fascinating stories to be told and doing so while eating is a true passion for me. My childhood nickname is Joey G. and I really do feel as happy as a kid when I lead tours. The goal of the tours is to celebrate
the makers and families behind Nyack’s restaurants and culinary landmarks.
Since April 2021, I’ve led 250 guests on 30 tours. Our summer calendar is up, and I am so excited for our classic Saturday tour, the farmer’s market walk-and- wine luncheon, and a Nyack pizza crawl. Check it out at
So, how has Nyack been treating you?
We said it once and we’ll say it again: we are obsessed with Nyack. It’s our home, it’s where we’ve chosen to raise our son, and it’s where we feel a sense of belonging that we’ve never felt before. And honestly, we felt most of that before we even stepped inside the cheese shop, but the extremely warm welcome that this community has given us since we opened has been nothing short of extraordinary. A day doesn’t go by when someone doesn’t say something to the effect of “we are so lucky to have this shop in Nyack.” Can you imagine that? We feel like we are the lucky ones! l (845) 878.3850 l
