The farmstead cheese business will open its first-ever retail location inside the Falchi Building, a Long Island City property owned by Jamestown, which also operates Chelsea Market. There’s no word on an opening date, but plans include cheese-aging caves in addition to the store. The Artisanal brand encompasses or has included chef Terrance Brennan’s Murray Hill bistro, which opened in 2001, as well as the now-closed Bar Artisanal in Tribeca and two defunct restaurants in Washington.
