Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine, Has A New Bistro In the Works


Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine, is announcing plans to open BAR PASTORAL. The new neighborhood bistro will celebrate the finest culinary producers and their wares. The bistro will offer guests table service in the evenings and weekends plus counter service during the weekdays until late afternoon. BAR PASTORAL is an extension of the company's retail shops and will highlight what makes Pastoral one of the best in its niche; offering customers paired artisan cheeses, charcuterie, beverages, accompaniments and more in a warm and approachable atmosphere. The location is slated to open in Fall 2012 in Chicago’s burgeoning East Lakeview neighborhood.

Greg O’Neill, Co-Founder and Co-Proprietor of Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine, states, “Since we opened our first Pastoral shop in 2004, customers have encouraged us to open a place that gives them the chance to enjoy our carefully chosen selection of culinary gems in a space and ambiance that reflects these products’ special roots.” He continues, "From food-loving libations to beautifully presented and perfectly paired fare, BAR PASTORAL is a natural extension of our retail concept and our mission to give customers easy and approachable access to the best small batch and specialty products made by culinary artisans locally, throughout the U.S. and around the globe.”

Along with the Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine reputation to accompany the bistro into its fruition, BAR PASTORAL will feature an intimate wine and craft beer bar, along with an artisan cheese and charcuterie bar that encourages guests to mix and match offerings with the help of Pastoral’s expert staff of passionate culinary professionals. The 40-seat bistro will also feature a number of hot and cold plates, with an ambience that will feel like an extension of Pastoral’s retail shops with a calming color palette and exposed brick and room-defining antiques.
