Slideshow: Inside the New, Very Relaxing Bar Pastoral


You’re about to settle in for a glitzy meal of 80-day-aged steak or squid eyeballs in Pop Tart foam or whatever, and you think to yourself… a hunk of cheese, a jug of wine, and thou. Preferably from a chef with a really big smile who just wants you to be happy. Is that too much to ask? No, it isn’t, in fact it’s at Bar Pastoral, the new wine bar and cheese paradise that just opened next to the original Pastoral store on Broadway. Chef and current Top Chef-testant Chrissy Camba is serving up comfy plates of good cheese and other stuff, her colleagues are pouring good wines and beers… it sounds pretty great even in the morning, but for several hours, at least, you’ll have to make do with our man Huge Galdones’ slideshow, below.
