On Thursday, Mr. F and I used a Groupon for a restaurant called, Zealous! We started with duck salad appetizers, and fancy cocktails with lavender syrup and rhubarb.We also had a goat cheese and beet salad, a fun burger with Havarti cheese and garlic cheese fries, and the Korean style fried chicken with sticky rice cakes and apple salad.The “Bruleed Key Lime Tart with Mixed Berries and Chantilly Cream” was stunning and delectable. A bonus dessert came with the check too!
Friday night, we met Mr. F’s high school buddy at Tank Noodle for some of the city’s best pho!
Saturday night, we met our Chicago besties at Quartino’s before the Snow Patrol concert. We had arugula pizza, small plates of lamb ravioli and skirt steak, short ribs and garlic shrimp. While the boys ended the meal with salami and olives, the girls enjoyed chocolate fondue with strawberries and biscotti.
Sunday night, we had dinner with our Chicago besties again, and watched Game of Thrones!My cousin Katy made delicious sweet potatoes and green beans, while Rob made flat-iron steak.
We had a lot of fun with their kittens, Lewis and Clark too! I’m also really looking forward to attending the Tracy Reese event at BHLDN this week with Katy!
