Pastoral Loop

Small-batch artisan cheeses are cut to order at this friendly, well-stocked wine-and-cheese shop. Menu items, like the London Calling sandwich of smoked Scottish salmon, cucumber and quark spread, are perfect for a quick lunch in one of the handful of seats on the outdoor patio, and the to-go picnic baskets (choose from cheese-, meat- and Bavarian-focused packages, among many other styles) are perfect for a Millennium Park concert.

I've never had such attentive service as the service I received at Pastoral. I went in looking for a pretty specific thing (wine from a region that doesn't really exist), and still the staff was helpful and steered me in the right direction. Pastoral is a happy little wonderland of cheese and wine, with bottles across price points. Definitely recommend!
