Tartine-quality bread in Chicago

Having visited a friend who lives around the corner from Tartine Bakery in San Francisco several times over the last few years, I have become enamored (obsessed?) with their bread, particularly the sesame loaf. To be honest, I have barely explored bakeries in Chicago, and I was wondering if anyone had tips on where look for bread that can satisfy my craving for a perfectly textured, flavorful loaf between trips?
