    Grab a hunk of cheese (you can't go wrong with the 4-Year Flagship), then head up B'way to Maison Kayser for a baguette (among NYC's best). Go make sandwiches in Madison Square Park. #FLATIRONMASHUP

    Some of the best handmade small batch cheese in NYC. The Flagship 15 mo. aged cheese is creamy and delicious, but the four year aged Flagship is truly outstanding!

    The best Mac and cheese I ever had. You can sit down and see they making your cheese while you eat it!

    We had the Mac and cheese, which is one of the best I've ever had in my life (very rich), flagship tomato soup which was delish, and fig and cheese sandwich which was perfect blend of sweet and cheesy

    You can get the grilled cheese any way you like it (even with mac and cheese inside), but we recommend keeping it simple with Beecher’s Flagship cheddar. Read more

    My overall experience was great. Tho for me a grilled cheese is buttered and put on an actual flat top grill, this is not the case here. Its more of a panini press here which for me isnt as good

    The mac and cheese has a lot of flavor and none of that fake easymac ish. I would get the small and get a salad to balance the heaviness. Or just eat the large like I did because what's health?

    Unbelievable cheesery (is that a word?). Love everything about this place, great lunch. Looks like there's limited seating so expect to take-out.

    The mac and cheese IS great but it's too mushy to be the "world's best." Plus, it comes from a big soup pot so there's no crustyness.

    Mac and cheese is made with penny. They don't try and do anything fancy with it except use tasty cheese which is a nice change of pace from all the variations out there.

    Watch them make the cheese while you munch on a grilled cheese sandwich. It also has a great selection of quality American-made artisan cheese.

    Did you know they have happy hour until 7pm? $7 glass of wine and $8 (small) cheese plate. Good way to kill 2 hours with a friend.

    I used to be skeptical of the grilled cheese & tomato soup lunch. Now, thanks to Beecher's, I'm all about it. (Make sure you get the smoked turkey sandwich!)

    You already know about the cheese I presume, but try the wine bar downstairs and drink every time you can feel the subway go under your feet.

    Although the cheese cream is good, the mac in the mac and cheese is way too soft. (Try Murray's!) The fig and cheese sandwich is good!

    Grab a drink downstairs (they make a mean old fashioned) and then take it upstairs to the sitting area above the cheese making.

    Filled with Beecher's Flagship cheese, a super-rich variety similar to Vermont cheddar, which is made in house. The nice thing about this sandwich is that it's not exceptionally greasy.
