Spring News

No spring chicken!
It has been 9 years since we opened the door at 1220 W Webster and a whopping 13 years since we set up our first tent and a table at the Green City Market. Over the years we have learned countless lessons, grown our business and challenged ourselves to be a little better every day. We still have a lot to learn, ideas to explore and we will continue to improve.

Speaking of growth, we are opening a mini Floriole in early May! The new space is part of the Politan Row food hall located at 111 N. Aberdeen. We will offer some of Floriole’s greatest hits and a few new surprises. Stay tuned for the grand opening announcement!

for James Beard Eats Week
APRIL 26 – MAY 6, 2019

Join Choose Chicago and the Illinois Restaurant Association in celebration of Chicago’s vibrant food scene during James Beard Eats Week. More than 100 Chicagoland restaurants will create customized dishes or menus inspired by the James Beard Foundation’s namesake chef, a pioneer of American dining.
Now in its fifth year, James Beard Eats Week brings together the restaurant community and the public to celebrate the James Beard Awards weekend. Restaurants participating in Eats Week donate to the James Beard Foundation Scholarship Fund, which supports aspiring Chicago culinary students on a path to success in the hospitality industry. In 2018, Eats Week raised $13,900 for the scholarship program.
Eat Your Veggies!
We are so darn proud of our dear friend Abra Berens whose book, Ruffage – a practical guide to vegetables, hits the shelves this month. Abra worked with us in the early days at the farmers’ markets and later she developed the savory side of our cafe menu including the classic Parisian, spicy tomato soup and vegetable-based salads. Her book is absolutely fantastic and will make you want to eat your veggies. Copies are available in the cafe and we will be hosting an event with Abra on June 9th (more info to come). Additionally, Read it and Eat has a talk and demo with Abra on April 28th, tickets here.
