Valentine’s Day is always a special occasion at Prairie Grass Cafe (601 Skokie Blvd.; Northbrook, IL; 847-205-4433), and this year, chef-owners Sarah Stegner and George Bumbaris are spreading the love even further by supporting the World Central Kitchen with this benefit. Founded by acclaimed chef and restaurateur José Andrés, World Central Kitchen is an organization of “Food First Responders” that serves millions of meals every year to people in need after natural disasters and in response to poverty and hunger. The World Central Kitchen team is currently in Puerto Rico to help in the aftermath of the recent earthquakes.
“We are very proud to support Chef Andrés and World Central Kitchen,” said Stegner. “We hope that on Valentine’s Day our guests will join us in opening their hearts to this generous and dedicated organization that does such important work for those in immediate need."
To emphasize this important mission, Prairie Grass Café will be selling flowers, Chef Sarah’s Hot Cocoa Mix, and Heart Sugar Cookies on Valentine’s Day. Guests can purchase them at lunch or dinner to take home and share with their loved ones. “These simple yet poignant gifts remind us that caring for others is an important message of Valentine’s Day,” said Stegner. “All proceeds from these sales will be donated to World Central Kitchen.”
Prairie Grass Cafe’s Valentine’s Day dinner menu will include some hearty and delicious specials: BBQ Braised Brisket with Mashed Potatoes & Mirepoix of Vegetables; Grilled Ora King Salmon with Sautéed Garlic Broccoli; and for dessert, Mom’s Cherry Pie. The full dinner menu will be available.
Prairie Grass Café is always very busy on Valentine’s Day, so please make reservations early by calling the restaurant at 847-205-4433.
