This October, Marion Street Market will be featuring a special “pink” dish and cocktail, plus wines and specialty goodies to raise funds for the local Rush Hospital Oak Park’s cancer center. In addition to the month long specials, the restaurant will also host a “Think Pink” Evening on October 15 complete with complimentary pink truffles, rose tastings and live music to kick off the event.

Pink Lobster Ravioli in a tomato cream sauce with arugula and Brussels sprouts $19.
Chocolate Raspberry Martini with Aylesbury Duck Vodka, Tempus Fugit Creme de Cocoa, housemade raspberry syrup and a dash of coconut milk with a raspberry brownie garnish $12.
Le Val Wines featured in the Bistro for $9/glass and $30/bottle or available for carryout in the Market for $12/bottle.
Proceeds from any specialty pink items in the Market sold in the month of October will also benefit Rush Oak Park Hospital.
On Thursday, October 15 from 6 to 9 p.m., the restaurant will be decked on in everything pink for its “Think Pink” evening! Guests who also wear pink will be welcomed with a complimentary pink truffle. The Linda Solotaire Trio will perform live and Le Val Winery will be onsite with complimentary tastings and answering wine related questions in the Market. RSVP is not required.
