READY. SET. EAT ALL THE CHEESE!
If you’ve ever imagined tasting your way through Di Bruno Bros. or wondered how you could glean some invaluable knowledge from our expert mongers, we've got two event options crafted just for you.
With Di Bruno Bros. After Hours, our Franklin or 9th St. locations remain open to you and your guests to enjoy a private shopping experience that affords you the tastes and smells of our shops. In addition to our artisan cheeses, gourmet charcuterie and antipasti, our cheesemongers will whip up select concoctions not available elsewhere, while they regale you with wondrous facts and tales of life behind the cheese counter. This BYOB-friendly event is a unique chance for an in-depth look into, and taste of, all that is Di Bruno Bros.
