Well, it’s another day of restaurants. We were in Chicago today for the Cubs/Cards game.
Sprouted whole wheat toast with peanut butter and cinnamon, strawberries and kiwi and one if Anne’s Pumpkin Muffins (post from the other day).
We stopped at Rockwood before the game. I started with a mixed green salad topped with chickpeas, tomatoes, cucumbers and strawberries drizzled with a garlic vinagerette. Then I had a panini with zucchini, summer squash, mushrooms and peppers (hold the cheese and pesto mayo). I used some of my vinagerette to drizzle on the bread in place of the mayo I opted out of. Washed it all down with a 312 beer (as far as I know all Goose Island beers are vegan). It was all delicious!
For dinner we hit up Fulton’s on the River. This is a steak and seafood place which save for the house salad had absolutely NOTHING on the menu I could eat. Lucky for me, the chef was very accommodating (I called ahead to give them a heads up about my vegan diet). The chef made me a mixed veggie plate of Peruvian purple potatoes, beets, mushrooms, peaches, and micro greens dressed with a grapefruit and pineapple salsa. Sounds odd, but it was great and I ate every last bit. Oh, and I did start with that house salad.
