‘Tis the season for picnic benches, portable speakers and best Buds.
So great making Budding friendships over our favorite meal. Thanks for bringing in the sunshine and beautiful perspective, @e_m_williams. #tbt#lastweek
Still suffering from #royalwedding envy? The cure just might be this strawberry Baba au Rhum at @nicoosteria, made with elderflower cake and lemon-mascarpone mousse, marcona almonds and strawberry-ricotta gelatto. Fit for a queen (or a Duchess of Sussex).
Whether it’s a business meeting, wedding, birthday or anniversary celebration, corporate gathering, rehearsal dinner or holiday party, we’re passionate about producing experiences that exceed the expectations of every attendee.
The excitement of the Chicago restaurant scene lives and dies by the 40-seat restaurant, where the intersection of creativity, risk, and real estate yield a sum greater than its parts. Chef Brian Ahern’s @boeufhaus is no exception, and its humble brasserie trappings are home to some of the most honest, original cooking in town. How many cooks scatter mirepoix into hot pans each day? Ahern is the only one we know of to transform mirepoix into a concept, a salad of powdered, cooked, pickled, and raw carrots, celery, and onion. There’s beef, too, like the $80 steak that people told Ahern he’d never sell in Ukranian Village, served alongside bowl-scraping pastas and high-contrast crudos. Ahern’s gamble-of-a-restaurant is Chicago’s reward and proof that independent chefs win the day with heart and conviction.⠀

Did a juice cleanse! And it wasn’t a typical weekend mimosa cleanse for a change 😂 .
Juice #1 was my favorite, but it also wasn’t really a “juice”. It was a matcha, banana, spinach smoothie that was freshly made when I was picking up my cleanse
Juice #2 - Juice Springsteen- it was as expected, pretty green. Contains: Apple, kale, parsley, ginger
Juice #3 - Juice Bigalow- was my least favorite, just because I thought it was way too sweet. Contains: beets, carrots, ginger and lemon
Juice #4 and #6 - Juicy Liu - naturally was my favorite! So creamy and just such a great treat! Contains: almonds, hazelnuts, honey and sea salt 😍
Juice #5 - Whitney Juice-Ton - last green juice of the day. Contains: spinach, carrot, cucumber, celery, apple and lemon .
Overall, such an easy and great experience. I even did a @barrysbootcamp class last night and survived. Thanks @realgoodjuiceco ! I’m definitely trying the 1 day meal plan next
@birchbenders paleo pancake mix is to die for! The flavor is delicious and you can feel good about what you’re eating (as far as pancakes go 🙃)! Topped mine with cashew butter, dark chocolate chips and unsweetened coconut flakes #feedfeed#birchbenders#pancakes#wildfriendsfun
(Noodle soup)^3 = Thai chicken soup, Macanese rice noodle soup, & Taiwanese pickled cabbage & pork ribs noodle soup. Dealing with a sore throat and soup is about the only thing I want to eat right now 😫
Oh go fly a kite!!! But seriously, I checked out a new neighborhood hangout spot today called Kite String Cantina (@kite_string_cantina) located in Roscoe Village (the old Bangers and Lace location). They have a short menu that consists of bubbler cocktails, gourmet taquitos, dips and chips! This BEET (you read that right) chip was sprinkled with lime and salt and paired with a Guajillo Ranch dip! It was delicious! I'll have a full review on my blog this week!
