prasino, a sustainably-minded eco-friendly American fare restaurant with an emphasis on seasonal, locally-grown organic ingredients will be opening a third location in the heart of the hipster scene in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood in early August 2011. prasino already has a strong following at their two successful suburban locations in St. Charles and LaGrange and will be bringing their eco-chic concept to 1846 West Division at the corner of Marion Court and Division Street.
prasino's menu is updated seasonally, but signature dishes include the Caprese Eggs Benedict ($9.50) made with an English muffin, tomato, basil, mozzarella, poached eggs, balsamic glaze and hollandaise sauce. prasino also features a plethora of omelets, frittatas, pancakes, French toast and crepes. Another signature item is the refreshing Lobster Stuffed Avocado ($16) topped with mango salsa and chili beurre fondue. For something hearty, the Braised Beef Short Ribs ($25) are sure to hit the spot, served with cauliflower cheddar gratin, seasonal greens and truffle mushroom cabernet sauce. A favorite fish dish is the Miso Chili Glazed Line Caught Alaskan Black Cod ($28), paired with steamed brown rice, julienned vegetables and ginger carrot sauce. For something more basic, prasino serves up some of the best salads, sandwiches and burgers in town. prasino also has an extensive beverage menu that includes fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies, an extensive gourmet tea list, hot/cold coffee drinks, small producer wines, beers and spirits. Furthermore, prasino also features delicious gluten-free desserts, breads, crackers and pancakes that do not sacrifice on flavor. prasino is sure to satisfy the diverse food preferences of any guest.
