one of my favorite lunch spots in the west loop is market, a "multi-faceted restaurant and sports bar." oh, so fancy!

i've been here for lunch with my office several times... but most recently, i met some girlfriends for dinner + drinks in their beer garden on a beautiful, chicago summer night. très fun. 

 here's what we had ...

hippie hummus :
house-made hummus, crisp vegetables, marinated olives, feta & warm wheat pitas.
per the usual for a non-med place, the hummus was pretty basic. but the veggies were indeed crisp... and the pitas were indeed warm and wheaty. so no complaints. just be sure to order with the feta on the side. we messed that up the first time around since it normally comes on top of the hummus.

falafel wrap :
falafel, cucumbers, red onion, tomatoes, tahini sauce, & a petite spinach salad. (no feta.)
this was super yum. i'll have to recant my previous about being so-so for a non-med place, because the falafel was soooo delish. however, it wasn't like typical falafel... much lighter and more flavorful. the spinach salad was only okay, but no loss since the wrap was so good.

cotton candy :
flavor of the day ... blue!     
love these restaurants that have fun desserts. like carnivale, we got cotton candy. can't go wrong.  

overall, market has lots of pluses : good for vegans w/ a large menu, great place for summer dining & lots of fun! check it out soon.
