Junk food is out as more people start on healthy eating. Youngsters nowadays prefer fresh food to canned food and they have become more inclined towards organic food. Be it India or around the world, people are getting more aware of healthy eating. I have come to spend few days on the other side of the world. Here I am visiting my sister in Chicago.
When my nephew told me that he owns a restaurant, I was excited and wanted to visit immediately. He drove us to his restaurant at 228W Chicago Ave and proudly introduced us to most impressive farm themed hangout called Farmhouse.
It was late afternoon and the weather was quite pleasant. Many people sat in the patio to enjoy the meal.
But we walked indoors to enjoy the meal. The ambience is beautiful. A small room called pickle room had different pickle bottles in the room.
Another smaller room had a cozy setup with seating for fifteen people to enjoy a private dinner
A long bar with high chairs occupied the large part of the room where people could enjoy food with hard drinks.
The rest of the restaurants in the large room had seating arrangement in such a way that each table had their own privacy.
We ordered crispy cheese balls, salads and pizza. The USP of this restaurant is the freshness of the food. The restaurant has the finest ingredients from the surrounding Chicago area and nearby states. It encourages the fresh farm products, thus supporting the local farms for cheese, wines, greens, breads and meat.
No canned food is used at all; even the tomato sauce and the dips are freshly cooked. The food had the most unique taste.
Dessert is to die for. The strawberry and cream burger was melt in mouth, delicious dish. I just loved it and couldn’t resists eating even though I am always watching my diet
One floor up, and there was a large room, big enough for a private party or some social meetings. If I were to stay in Chicago, I would love to host open mike poetry performance in this room like we do back home in India.
So very proud of my nephew for owning such a beautiful restaurant where health come first and dining is a great experience….
