The Space

56 Spring St: The new home to French cheese in New York


Gourmet Destination and more

Though it will provide the most exquisite goods and treats for your Thursdays Aperitifs and Sunday Brunches, French Cheese Board is also a destination featuring exclusive programming that blends art, design and food in innovative forms that appeal to both the connoisseurs and the curious in search of the mystique and passion that surround French cheese. French Cheese Board is an ambassador of the French cheese experience and also serves as a platform for conversations and debates.


Gourmet Destination and more

As an open venue, French Cheese Board will feature events and exhibits – such as NFT: Fromage in the Metaverse*, our current one – where food becomes the centerpiece and topic for engaged communication. The space serves as a beacon for chefs, artists, bloggers, foodies and cheese makers so they may explore dairy products and foods as a medium for development and innovation.

*Working with ARTPOINT, we commissioned four artists to express their sensations when evoking French cheese and butter. The result can be seen during regular hours, from 11-8pm (Mon-Fri) and 11-7pm (Sat-Sun). 



Culture Lab

French Cheese Board is also a fab lab of ideas, where people can participate in cooking lessons, wine and cheese pairings sessions, interactive presentations on how to indulge in French cheese, and improve their knowledge through playful and interactive displays dedicated to the art and craft of cheese. The boutique also offers a selection of cookware and accessories that is sure to appeal to the trendiest of guests.
