I love charcuterie. I grew up snacking on it, and you’ll still find me buying some good cheese and meats to make a platter on any given day.

There’s a place in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood that specializes in just this kind of thing. TÊTE CHARCUTERIE makes everything in-house, and just about everything is quite delicious.

The standout is, of course, the charcuterie boards. They come in small and large. For our group of 4 ladies, the small board was the perfect size.

My favorites on this board are definitely the Mortadella, and the Coppa. We also ordered the Smoked Lamb to try, which was rich and delicious!

• cozy atmosphere

• open kitchen

• delicious charcuterie

• great wine selection and specials


• Our server required us to order everything at once, as the Chef likes to portion the meal out from there. I’m not a huge fan of that, especially not for a charcuterie-focused place, where I want to dine at leisure over wine.

• The portions are definitely not as small as they sound or are explained. For 4 ladies, we had the small board, an extra order of smoked lamb, summer veggies, hamachi crudo, lamb sausage platter, and a pasta dish. WAY too much.

The menu is heavy on the cured meats, so definitely stick with that! We ordered too many dishes for the 4 of us ladies, but will definitely go back for wine and a small board over some chit chat soon!
