After a soft opening Saturday, Butchers Alley’s new cheese shop and charcuterie counter is now fully stocked with products.

Inside customers will find such offerings as Serrano and Iberico ham, chorizo, roast beef, turkey, spices, cream cheese spreads and cheeses ranging from manchego to cambazola. There’s also an olive bar.

The new space is connected to the butcher shop that opened earlier this year on Bethesda Avenue and across from Pescadeli—the Spanish market and seafood shop that has been in business for about 30 years next to Bethesda Crab House. The owners of Pescadeli also own Butchers Alley.

Chris Hadley, Pescadeli’s manager, said that after the butcher shop found some success, the owners decided to sign a lease at the former Bethesda Water Store location to open the cheese shop. The Water Store abruptly closed in August.

Hadley said Butchers Alley plans to carry products not typically found in larger grocery stores. He said the shop will begin selling gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches in January.
