- Prairie Grass Cafe Chef's Creative Vegetarian Subscription for May
Prairie Grass Cafe (601 Skokie Blvd., Northbrook; 847-205-4433) is offering a special Vegetarian Seasonal Salad Thursdays in May. This subscription will be featuring and highlighting local farms from Green City Market and the surrounding area. Orders may be made by calling the restaurant. There are four meals in the subscription, available for pickup every Thursday in May.
"I will make a composed salad reflective of the season primarily with vegetables but also with some grains, nuts, and fruit," says Chef Sarah Stegner. "This subscription includes the salad plus one side to round out the meal, adding texture, flavor and diversity. I'd like you to trust me to create a delicious salad for you. This is how I enjoy eating and I'd like to share that with you. These kinds of salads require "foraging/gathering", or what we now call procurement. They are labor-intensive with lots of washing, chopping, blanching and assembly. The end goal is delicious and nutritious food that supports your schedule and lifestyle."
Note: Please note that all takeout orders are subject to an 18% taxable service fee.
The Seasonal Entrée Chopped Salad Subscription (Pick-up every Thursday in the month of May) includes: One Seasonal Vegetarian Entree Chopped Salad and One Seasonal Side for a one time charge of $100 with the option to add cheese for $12.
Salad and side will be served cold. Pick-up any time after 4pm on Thursdays (May 6, 13, 20, 27).
