basically since beatrix (in river north) opened ... i've been wanting to go. so one day, i played hooky from work & finally went with mah pal, blair. us girls needed some pre-spin class calories!

anyway, about : "beatrix is a neighborhood restaurant, coffeehouse & meeting place ... chef partners susan weaver, rita dever & john chiakulas have created a menu inspired by food made in lettuce entertain you's test kitchen." k, we know i love lettuce, so lez go!

here's what i had ...

supernatural chopped salad :
spinach, romaine, baby greens, celery, cucumber, tomato, dried corn, michigan peaches, sunflower & pumpkin seeds, green beans, basil, market vinaigrette. 
i mean the title itself is enough to sell me 100%. plus, this is the dish that made me love fresh fruit in my salads. when i saw michigan peaches, i was iffy. but they were perfect! the fact that they were the ideal ripeness helped, i'm sure ... but either way. 

beatrix is also just a super cool environment ... i could hang out there & sip iced tea all afternoon. they've got a few other items i'd like to try ... so i'm certain i'll be back soon.
