Farm to Fork: Sample the freshest from the Midwest

Glazed Pork Belly

Food doesn’t taste any better than when it’s fresh and well-prepared. We’re embracing and celebrating the best foods in the Midwest with a new seasonal menu that’s designed to introduce our discerning customers to new flavors and temptingly delicate dishes. Our new special menu, called Farm to Fork, begins August 17, and will end September 30.

There are a few suppliers that will be used among all five of our restaurants, but most produce will be acquired from local purveyors as close to the restaurants as possible. We’ve asked our five executive chefs to create dishes for the menu, and we’ve chosen the very best of what they’ve produced. Since we’re proud of their efforts, we’re listing their names below with each item, and you can look forward to more blog posts from them about the dishes and how they’re prepared. Join us soon for this menu. It’s one of the best collections of dishes we’ve ever offered.
