Foursquare Tips

  • Meat and cheese? Yes, please! Bar Pastoral is known for the high-quality food throughout the menu, but also for the terrific ambiance throughout the space, including the patio.
  • cozy wine bar that rotates its selection of wines and cheeses often. they also have a pretty decent selection of small plates.
  • The Bitches Say: A. The intimate neighborhood spot is perfect for a summer patio brunch, and grabbing picnic goodies to go.
  • Cheese cheese and more cheese. Grilled cheese flight was outstanding.
  • Peter's recommendations are phenomenal!!! Go with it!!!
  • Love sitting at the bar! Great cheese feels like you're in a european chateau's wine cellar
  • Don't go if hungry. It's a place to sample and talk but not to EAT. The wine and cheese pairings are lovely, but I left hungry even after consuming quite a few food items.
  • Roasted Cauliflower was outstanding.
  • The Grilled Cheese flight...yum yum yum
  • Came brunch, will be returning to try wine!
  • Try the wine flight and let the server suggest pairings - everyone is very knowledgable. Stop in next door to buy the favorite wine you tried.
  • Check out their monthly Afternoon Explorations for a $5 tasting. Your ticket price can be applied toward your food bill. Great way to spend an hour on a Saturday!
  • Get the pairings. Chef is friendly and food is amazing.
  • Great spot to try new cheeses. I always write down the ones I liked to buy @whole foods in the future.
  • Don't miss out on the mushroom fondue and the chicken liver mousse. The butter roasted halibut is another must-have.
  • Best cheese plates in town. Not for the anti-lactose crowd.
  • alllll the cheese. Amazing
  • The rustic interior conjures a wine-and-cheese bar vibe, but Top Chef contestant Chrissy Camba's menu of small and large plates puts this spot firmly in restaurant territory.
  • Bacon and eggs. Aka pork belly. 2 poached eggs. Sweet potato goodness. Go. Now.
  • Talk to Peter behind the bar. He will give killer recommendations, perfect for the newbie cheese connoisseur.
