Looking for Barrata Cheese

While in Europe, I had the pleasure of trying barrata cheese and fell madly in love with it. Now I am trying to find it somewhere in Chicago - or at least a restaurant that serves it. I have tried igourmet, Murray's in New York, Bedford Cheese Shop and The Cheese Stands Alone here in Chicago to no avail. Any ideas? WF said they might carry it around the holidays ... thanks!

  1. Do you mean burrata?

    You might try asking at the restaurant Bin 36.

    1. the name is Burrata but I don't know where you can find it here

      1. There was an article in the July 2007 issue of Chicago Magazine that mentions a few sources for burrata cheese, is that what you are looking for or is barrata a different beast?

        1. Not sure where to buy but Green Zebra currently has it on the menu. Yummy.

          1. Oops, sorry I cannot spell properly today - yes, I am referring to burrata...thanks
