Gourmet takeout in Lakeview; Bar Pastoral is next door, and there are additional locations downtown.
This Lakeview gourmet shop may be best known for its outstanding artisanal cheese selection, but it also offers carryout sandwiches featuring other mouthwatering products. Take the panino di prosciutto—San Daniele prosciutto with aged cheese and field greens on a fresh baguette—or the salumi Basquese, spicy salami with piquillo peppers.
