Farmerie 58


We happened upon Farmerie 58 while en route to check out another restaurant, but were so famished that we quickly succumbed to its sunny patio (and for J) the promise of a burger.

Using products that are farmed sustainably, Farmerie 58 strives to offer a wide-ranging menu that is affordable to the River North neighborhood's residents -- and not just its visitors. Selections go from simple (grilled chicken salad) to saucy (white chocolate bread pudding with roasted quince, caramel popcorn, and vanilla anglaise) in an effort to meet everyone's needs.

Lobster Bisque - Diced Lobster Meat, Lemon, Parsley - $10

Your standard lobster bisque, only prettier.

Bistro Burger - Tallgrass® Beef, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Smoked Cheddar, Dijon Aioli - $12

Nice and juicy. The grass-fed beef had a great flavor, though J would have preferred a hamburger bun over the thick slabs of Focaccia.

Pan-Roasted Wild Salmon BLT - Applewood Smoked Bacon, Tomato, Tarragon Aioli,
Wild Lettuces, Red Wine Vinaigrette - $12

A fun retreat from the traditional BLT. I loved the sweet potato chips, which were still hot, slightly chewy and glistening with just a hint of oil.


And with that we had the fuel we needed to head out in search of the Vosges Boutique on Michigan...
