I am from Terra Haute, IN. Are there any restaurants in Chicago that specialize in cheese and crackers? In TH we have a place called Sloopy's that does a great cheese and cracker menu. I will be visiting Chicago in November and want the best cheese and crackers that can be had in Chicago. HELP!

  1. Not sure about crackers, but the more upscale restaurants often have a cheese course. They will generally serve it with appropriate bread stuff.

    If you're thinking more of bruschetta and things topping toast, try Spanish tapas places - Cafe Iberico for example. Or try wine bars. They don't necessarily have a huge selection of cheese, but they may have what you want. Webster's wine bar, for example, has some bruschettas and a cheese selection, as well as roasted garlic with cheese and bread.
