Multiple inside sources whisper to Eater this week that lauded Bleecker Street cheese shop Murray's is expanding beyond the world of retail into the realm of restaurants. Word on the street is the cheesemonger—which also has a shop in Grand Central and provides cheese to Kroger supermarkets and others—will soon launch a wine and cheese bar somewhere in the Village. The location and the details are hush hush right now and reps won't confirm the news, but we hear it could open as soon as next month.

Update: A tipster reports that the Murray's folks are taking over the former Bar'rique space at 264 Bleecker Street, just a few storefronts down from the cheese shop.
