You get what you pay for... 6/30/2006

...and here that means top-of-the-line food and excellent service. True, it is pricy. True, you may be shocked at the total for a small basket of purchases. But it's worth it because when you cook with Fox and Obel ingredients, the difference will be noticeable. more

Fox and Obel 3/15/2006

This is the ulitmate gourmet food market. You will forget Whole Foods once you go here. All the things they carry here are so great and of the finest quality. My favorite is the cheese section. I have never seen a better selection of cheese anywhere. Plus, they have a counter where you can pick up prepared food and take it home. Most of it is better than what you would find at a restaurant. It is amazing. But be prepared to pay a pretty penny for this gourmet's not exactly cheap. more

Great Meats and Seafood 3/9/2006

Fox & Obel is a gourmet market with selections you wouldn't find elsewhere. There's an extensive olive oil section with tons of different varieties. The best place about Fox & Obel is their meat and seafood counter. Although it's pricey, they serve great meat and seafood. It's one of the few places that offers aged steaks. I've gotten lamb chops here, and they are out of this world. The shrimp and crab legs are also excellent. But you'll definitely pay for the quality - quite pricey. more

Great gourmet market 12/23/2005

Yes, F&O is a pricey market, but it has some of the best gourmet products you'll find in a great atmosphere. Clerks are very helpful, and their puddings and pre-prepared foods are phenomenal. There is a fresh olive bar, olive oil and vinegar tasting stations, as well as a wide selection of cheeses and wines, chocolates and baked goods. more

Fox & Obel: A Little Spendy, But Perfectly Wonderful 10/6/2005

Fox & Obel, a high-end grocery and cafe, is located in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago, close the Navy Pier. I consistently encounter excellent service and great produce and meats at the store, and I am particularly impressed by their fish quality. The bakery is also excellent, and you will find yourself tempted by all the wonderful breads, pastries, and other goodies they make fresh. If you are in the area and don't need groceries, but instead are interested in a quick meal, the cafe in the back of the store is pretty quick and delicious. The prices for cafe items also seem pretty reasonable. more

  • Sneakily tucked into the corner beyond the Fox & Obel checkout, this sun-drenched space is flooded with cafe-types from the neighborhood during the day. As the lights go low, though, the warm, narrow room, which is fringed with palms, takes on a decidedly sophisticated feel, shifting its focus to serve three- and six-ounce pours of boutique wines. A seasonal, vino-friendly menu--perhaps ginger-spiced chicken with pomegranate sauce--includes three pairing suggestions per dish. After dinner, sips like Moscato D’Asti up the appeal of Anjou-apple crisp-type treats.
