Hi folks! Just wondering if there are are any Miyoko Schinner-style vegan artisan cheese shops anywhere in NYC yet. It seems like there must be something like that out there, but, if so, I can't seem to track it down. Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, but fingers crossed... Thanks in advance!

You can buy dr. Cow cheese in some stores, and one the blossom restaurants used to have a cheese platter. That's all I can think of. But it sounds like a good idea!

That would be an awesome idea for someone to open a vegan cheese shop. There is Dr.Cow's cheese, but they don't have a retail store. I'm working on opening a vegan restaurant in NYC and one of my ideas for the menu is to have a housemade cheese plate.

Thanks! I actually haven't tried dr.Cow yet, so maybe I should just start there. Do you have a favorite shop where they carry it?

Veganchefjay, a vegan cheese plate would be awesome. You should really consider having a cheese counter too-- It seems like there would be a huge demand! Think of all the vegan restaurants in the city that would want to serve it, not to mention thousands of vegans and lots of adventurous omnivores and would-be vegans. What neighborhood will your restaurant be in?

Just wanted to share that I came across a new line of artisan vegan cheeses that's starting to become available in NYC called Treeline Cheeses (http://treelinecheese.com/). Like Dr-Cow, they're fermented nut cheeses and aren't necessarily imitations of particular dairy cheeses, but they have a few varieties (smoked, pepper, etc.) and they tasted a lot like real cheese to me. They weren't exactly creamy, but they had a lot of the nuttiness I associate with parmesan or gruyere and weren't as tart as Dr.Cow. Anyway, I get the sense that they are really trying to break into the NYC market (I think they're only available at one store and at periodic events) and need to create more demand, so I'm spreading the word!
