Healthy Eats: Cheese Boards Are Life

Pass the Brie, please.

If you're an avid cheese lover like me, you're going to love exploring the different cheese boards offered around the city. Aside from a beautiful presentation, the fruit and nuts that usually accompany the cheese provide essential nutrients while leaving you full with a perfect amount of food intake. While I have only discovered two restaurant favorites thus far, I am on the search to see where else in the city these delicious spreads reside.

Where: 3 Arts Cafe at Restoration Hardware, Gold Coast

Menu Item: Delice De Bourgogne Cheese Board
(served with preserves, pecans, and a warm baguette)

Where: Bridge House Tavern, River North

Menu Item: Cheese Board 
(an assortment of cheeses, honey, spiced nuts, fresh fruit, sunflower raisin chips)

PSA: The Chicago Punch cocktail at Bridge House Tavern is the perfect #treatyoself

Putting these on my "To Make" list! The city is full of wonderful food, including healthier alternatives if you just know where to look. With summer on the rise, I'm sure the list will continue to grow as other Chicago hot spots start to follow the cheese board trend, if not already!
