$10 Lunch: Pastoral Cheese and Meat Plate

By Sarah Freeman  |  May 13, 2014

It’s lunchtime, and that granola bar/apple/bag of chips combo is looking pretty pathetic. Upgrade to a quick and tasty meal that, at $10 or less, won't starve your wallet.

Oh you fancy, huh? Pinkies up for this gourmet lunch on a budget. Pastoral in Lakeview, downtown and at the French Market will put together a delicious cheese and charcuterie plate for your lunchtime pleasure. The trio of artisanal cheeses and meats comes with bread and seasonal accompaniments. Span the globe with goods from France, Spain, Italy and in our own backyard, such as Pig & Fig terrine. The plate is available for $9.95, but if you are looking for a more conventional lunch, the shop also makes sandwiches to order. The Atun A Tuna sandwich is Spanish tuna with housemade black olive tapenade, piquillo peppers, red onions, shaved celery, tomatoes and field greens. This sandwich and more are available for less than $10. A glass of wine with that, however, will likely bust the budget.
