Adrien Bellagio and Ben Papale (me) have begun our web series featuring local businesses. The first film in our series features Bar Pastoral in Lakeview and Greg O’Neil, Co-Owner and Founder.
More than a decade ago, Greg O’Neil saw the need for a local shop where the neighborhood could access artisan cheese, wine, and bread. His dream was in tune with the neighborhood, and Pastoral was born.
More than a decade later, Pastoral now features four retail locations and two restaurants throughout Chicago. In this film, we feature the original Pastoral and the restaurant Bar Pastoral, adjacent storefronts on Broadway in Lakeview East.
Bar Pastoral’s service sets it apart from so many other venues in Chicago. But it isn’t just about service. On the menu are fine quality and exotic cheeses you won’t find elsewhere. The wine selection is exquisite. And the staff’s knowledge of how to pair their many offerings is indispensable.
This is certainly one of our neighborhood favorites, and highly recommend you drop by Bar Pastoral! Visit them at 2947 N Broadway or at pastoral artisan.com.
We work, live, and play in Lakeview, and we love this neighborhood. Looking forward to featuring many more films of local businesses as we work (and drink!) our way through this series. Enjoy!
