pierrot gourmet.

i'm always looking for a great new lunch spot. so recently, two girlfriends and i went to pierrot gourmet, a european style cafe located in the peninsula hotel.

at first, i was a little iffy. for some reason, lunch at fancy hotel seemed too fancy for me. but boy was i wrong. pierrot gourmet is very casual and super cute ... and we sat outside, which was great since chicago had idyllic 70 degree weather that day.

here's what i had ...

mediterranean wrap :
hummus, avocado, radishes, tomatoes, cucumber (no yogurt dressing) w/ a green salad.
not the typical mediterranean wrap with the avocado and radishes ... but i definitely liked that. hummus and avocado together create a creamy & delicious texture! perfect portion size, perfect flavor. a seriously perfect lunch.

also -- the iced tea they had was vanilla bean flavor. i've never had anything like this before. so so so good, it's worth the trip in itself.  

if you're wandering around michigan ave., take a step off that crazy busy street and try pierrot gourmet for lunch or just a quick refreshment. quite quite good.
