From picking up a fresh sammie at the Chicago French Market outpost to shopping the storefront for a special bottle of vino, there’s more than one reason to love Pastoral. And its newest concept, Bar Pastoral goes together with the single diner like wine and cheese.
Sit at the bar and you’ll have the undivided attention of the staff, making it feel kinda like a one-on-one wine tasting. Almost everything on the menu is sized as either a small or a snack plate, so you need not worry about over-ordering or feeling uncomfortable sitting solo with a monstrous pile of food in front of you.
Bar Pastoral, 2947 North Broadway Avenue (between Oakdale and Wellington avenues); 773-472-4781.
