The week before we go on vacation we buy a TON of food AND I forget to cancel my @plated box. Delicious stupid mistakes in the form of pine nut crusted salmon. Not pictured the creamy tomato farro which was made creamy with my personal favorite a bunch of mayonnaise. YUM! Credit to #mainsqueeze for making dinner. #platedpics #DiningatmyDesk #chicagogrammers
Yeah I'd tell you what's in this Poké bowl from @firefinpoke BUT the truth is I scarfed it down too fast to provide those super accurate journalistic details you're so used to with my posts. I can tell you with % accuracy that this is the Tree Fish bowl with a base of purple rice and it's DELICIOUS!Chicagogrammers partnered up with the amazing team at FireFin to provide Poké bowls to our members and it's safe to say they're all winners (the Poké and our members)! Loving seeing all those…
Remember that time this super wonderful Chicagogrammers crew took over I do! So glad you were all there and thank you so much for the wonderful experience and food Olive! Ahhh it won't let me tag you all!
Is there a better way to start off the weekend than with burrata and bread? Ok how about that sweet happy hour at @stellabarra ($6 cocktails from 4-6) and free burrata with @yelpchicago check-in in. Don't forget your @lettuceentertainyou points! Oh and the conversation with @bullshitfreebabe was just what I needed and big thanks for the heads up on the best happy hour in town! #DiningatmyDesk #chicagogrammers
If you want a taste of Iceland get yourself over to @baptistechicago where they're offering a limited time four course tasting menu as a collaboration with one of Iceland's top chefs. This slow cooked cod (course two) was so incredibly flavorful. I want to go to Iceland NOW! #tasteoficeland #DiningatmyDesk #chicagogrammers
If you want straight-up Northern Italian comfort food but aren't looking for pasta might I suggest It's such a great idea tucked away in the West Loop/Fulton Market. Toppings on polenta. Done and delish! Big thanks to Polenta Bar and for hosting!
When told he couldn't make a baked falafel that tasted good the owner of @olivemediterranean had to prove everyone wrong. Love falafel but kinda hate that it's fried? Not at Olive Mediterranean Grill. How is it? DELICIOUS! Thanks to Olive for having all the @chicagogrammers for the best happy hour last night!! #oliveandcg #chicagogrammers #DiningatmyDesk
In honor of 364 days until the next I bring you a macaroni and cheese quesadilla concocted by a genius.
Big thank you to @thepolentabar and @hungerlusttravel for the amazing dinner! Haven't been to Polenta Bar yet? It's by the Morgan stop in Fulton Market/W Loop on Lake. They've got...basically soft serve polenta (outstanding idea!) that you can top with all sorts of meat toppings and veggies. We got to sample them all and I can't recommend enough that you try the same. Their ragu was on point every mushroom I had was phenomenal and my favorite vegetable was their delicious carrots. It's a…
You're just too good to be true...can't take my eyes off of you! Pictured: the most beautiful sushi from @shiawasechicago. It was my first but definitely not last experience with a soft shell crab. #DiningatmyDesk #chicagogrammers #sushi
When Main Squeeze surprises you with a from you love him just a little bit more!
I know I know @loumalnatis pizza is the best but every time I go to Lou's I almost crave their Malnati salad more than pizza!! It's got romaine black olives mushrooms crunchy salami blue cheese and the most delicious fresh dressing! It's a total winner and thanks to @anneprins for hosting the yummiest event last night at Lou's! #DiningatmyDesk #chicagogrammers
When in doubt pizza. Preferably really delicious pizza from Their pizza and wings are truly fantastic and such excellent flavor combinations! This was the bbq pork (cause chicken shouldn't get all the pizza love).
