Today marks the soft opening of Chantal's Specialty Cheese Shop in Bloomfield. Until 6 p.m., customers are invited to stop in to see the space, talk to the staff and, of course, eat a little cheese. The shop is specializing in in artisanal, fresh-cut cheeses and a selection of charcuterie.
Owners Anaïs Saint-André Loughran, Donna Kyler and Chris Loughran met in Pittsburgh after Saint-André Loughran and Loughran moved from New York City. Saint-André Loughran and Kyler both have experience as cheesemongers and, through the trio's love of food and passion, Chantal's was born. Their collaboration is named for Saint-André Loughran's mother who passed away some years ago.
Look for imports and local cheeses at this new neighborhood joint, located across the street from Children's Hospital.
