Even if you weren't as fortunate as I was to be born in America's Dairyland (that's Wisconsin, by the way), I know you love a good bleu/gouda/cheddar just as much as the next guy. Here are some spots known for their stellar cheese selection.
The cream of the farmers market crop! Klug Farms rules the produce scene & Crumb is a bread-lover's dream.
There's so much to love here, from the meaty subs to the perfectly curated grocery selection (high-quality oils, pastas, cheese). Love the down-to-earth, old-school staff.
Love this spot for craft beer & wine, local artisan foods, a great cafe & of course, cheese! Staff is knowledgeable. Try the grilled cheese!
The Bluebird/Webster's Wine Bar crew knows it's wine...but they also cook up some killer grub. Stick to small plates, and try the frog legs if they're on the menu.
Loop lunch go-to for fresh 'wiches (love "Blue Pig & Fig") & salads. Grab picnic supplies-think cheese & wine-b4 a show in Millennium Park.
Cool concept w/ retail & lounge combo. Staff incredibly helpful. Bottles fit all budgets. Lounge has great vino, but nibbles lack oomph.
A foodie's heyday filled w/ Euro groceries, liquor, and a deli. Grab a seat & a stein on the rooftop beer garden in summer- nothing's finer!
