Murray’s Cheese Shop, Greenwich Village’s 73-year-old temple of coagulated dairy, is expanding to Los Angeles. Eater spied the news this morning over Twitter, and now a Murray’s representative confirms the westward expansion to Grub Street. Murray’s plans to open five shops within L.A.-area locations of Ralph’s supermarket, serving both cheese and other specialty items from its Bleecker Street flagship, as well as a large selection of California cheeses. The mongers manning each location will all be Murray’s trained and outfitted, with tasting events planned through this summer and fall to familiarize Angelenos with the time-tested brand.
