  1. Fox & Obel has about 4 different ones to choose from....2 from Parma, 1 San Daniele, and another one. They'll let you taste them all.

    1. excellent, thanks for a quick response!

      1. Fox and Obel is the best(and most expensive) pick...but, for future refeence you'll find prosciutto of varying quality in most major supermarkets including(from personal experience): Treasure Island, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Jewel, and Potash Bros. Most of the aforementioned have locations near the Loop.

        1. Also you may want to check out Little Italy.

          1. If you drive to Fox and Obel (which I love, BTW), they have free valet parking in front of the store. They also validate for free self-parking with purchase (up to 90 minutes) if you park in the garage for the AMC movie theaters which are on the block kitty-corner to the northwest from F&O (you can enter from either Grand or Illinois).
