Overview
Their motto is "FIELD TO FORK. FARM TO PLATE. HARVEST TO HOLD, BOUNTY TO BOWL." They really hold true to this as all their ingredients are fresh and tasty. I think I literally come here every week. I originally visited this restaurant for the first time when I moved to Oak Park in the summer and they had also just opened. It was the first restaurant in Oak Park I had been to and probably the best to date. I commend owner Rachel Dennis for her great choice in opening this location and hiring an mazing chef. I think I personally thank Chef Jason Kurosaki for my meal and tell him how outstanding it was each time I go. He may even know me by name now. What I really love about this place is that they offer a great menu and have a ton of vegetarian and gluten-free options, too! When I first went there I ordered this amazing dish-pan-seared chicken with a lemon rosemary glaze and pan roasted vegetables...Oh. My. God. I almost licked the plate...almost... the glaze was so good! My friend ordered the Tomato Bisque Soup and Buttermilk Panna Cotta. I've gone back with another friend and she ordered the meat loaf and said it was the best she's had. It wasn't greasy, but was moist and tender. I ordered the roasted garlic and arugula flatbread and added goat cheese since I'm basically addicted to goat cheese. It was crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. It was cooked in a wood-fired oven which gave it a charred taste, which I love. We also ordered a bottle of chilled Prosecco since we were celebrating a night out. Since then, I have gone back many times and ordered: SMALL PLATES:(Cold) the roasted corn salad-it was light and a great starter, (Hot) Sweet Italian Homemade Sausage with marinara & fennel-was tender and sweet and devoured quickly SOUPS: (Soup de Jour)Roasted Butternut Squash pureƩ soup-it left me wanting more...I couldn't stop eating it! PANINI: Eggplant & Spinach-it was crispy and flavorful FLATBREAD: Sausage & Pepper, Spinach & Arugula, Chicken & Pesto, and Margherita....yep, tried almost all of them! LARGE PLATES: Chicken with Eggplant Baba Ganoush, Meatloaf, Chicken with Rosemary & Lemon Glaze. DESSERT: Buttermilk Panna Cotta, Apple Crostata, Salted Caramel Housemade Sorbet(Yes, sorbet, but it was creamy like gelato), Pineapple Housemade Sorbet ALCOHOL: At the bar they have two vodkas that are in-house flavored....one spicy and one sweet. I recommend both depending on your preference. The spicy is REALLY hot, FYI. More to come, I'm sure. " I LOVE this place!" is an understatement.
