Chicago: Frontera Grill & Karyn’s


Hi Friends!

We’re back from Chicago. It was so much fun! My husband and I spent last week in the city while the Grandparents watched the kids (THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!).

The food was spectacular! I highly recommend a trip to Chicago if you’re into great restaurants.

As soon as we arrived we checked into our room and were off to a cocktail party.

The first night we dined at Frontera Grill, a Rick Bayless restaurant. This was my top favorite of the trip – a must visit! They had lots of vegetarian options that were easily made vegan by requesting no cheese.

The margaritas were also fabulous!

The restaurant had lots of fun, colorful Mexican artwork.

The next morning after all the delicious food and drinks we had I walked around the city with a giant coffee in hand.

During the trip we also visited 2 of Karyn’s vegan restaurants.

We grabbed a quick lunch at Kayrn’s Raw Cafe.

I ordered a curry made with coconut noodles and an apple-kale juice.

Another evening we went to Kayrn’s on Green with a really fun group of people.

I had vegan crab cakes and a side of Brussels sprouts, and my husband ordered the vegan Shepard’s pie.

We arrived home to Idaho to a winter wonderland. The snow is gently falling as I write. Now, I’m officially getting excited for the holidays!

See you tomorrow!

With love & gratitude,
Wendy Irene
