Check Out Two of Chicago’s Best Cheese Shops

February 26, 2015 1:01 pm

Whether you eat it on pizza, melted in lasagna, or just plain and paired with the perfect wine, cheese is one of life’s simplest culinary pleasures. Chicago is home to a number of impressively varied cheese shops that any cheese enthusiast will love, and these are just two of the best.

Marion Street Cheese Market
With both an American artisanal section and a wide variety of types from all over the world, Marion Street Cheese Market carries a cheese for every taste. The knowledgeable staff members know just about everything there is to know about their trade, and they’re always on hand to make a recommendation or help find the perfect cheese for a specific dish. The Cheese Market also offers cheese and charcuterie platters, a wholesale program for bulk purchases, and a Cheese of the Month Club to help customers sample as many cheeses as possible.

Caputo Cheese Market
Caputo Cheese Market has been around since 1978, and though it started as just a small retail cheese shop, it has since expanded into selling oils, vinegars, spices, pastas and high-quality cheeses from around the world. The Caputo grated cheeses are some of the shop’s most famous items, but the fresh mozzarella, brie, and soft chevre are equally delicious.

Stout Barrel House and Galley: Feast on Elevated Comfort Food at This Chicago Nitropub

February 18, 2015 12:01 pm

Stout Barrel House and Galley's website dubs it a “nitro pub,” a blend of a nightclub and a pub. It could also be described as a rung above a gastropub in terms of atmosphere and dress. Stout Barrel House specializes in upscale comfort food, so if you have a craving for smoked mac and cheese with bacon, corn flake-crusted fried chicken, a grilled cheese sandwich, or hand-breaded pickles, this is your place.

While Stout Barrel House prides itself on its selection of craft beers, plenty of diners seem to be drawn to the cocktail menu. It offers a small selection of concoctions, with the Moscow Mule and the Draft Craftail — Bacardi 8, strawberry, lime, pineapple, and aromatic bitters — among some of the more popular selections. Since this place can get packed, reservations are recommended, especially on weekends.
