evanston : found kitchen & social house.

i've had found kitchen & social house in evanston on my 2015 eating list forever. (ok, since january. tevs.) so when i had a friend coming in town & staying in evanston (hi, jill!), it was an obvious choice for dinner.

a bit about this lovely establishment : "found is a kitchen, a social house & a restaurant with a mission. its rustic, new american dishes change with the market & season and are served in a relaxed, creative atmosphere inspired by 1920s bohemian paris & icons of the beat generation." seasonal food + paris inspirato? sign me up. nowww.

here's what i had ...

kale & swiss chard salad :
heirloom beans & grains + preserved lemon. 
even though this just looks like a plate of green, it was yum. kind of almost all my favorite things in a salad. could have used more kale, imho

white corn & camillia seed polenta cakes :
baby bok choy, radish & herbed tofu. 
mmm. really, really, really delicious. but maybe a little heavy on the olive oil. but the polenta cakes with the tofu mixed in were awesome. 

my dinner date wasn't as into found as i was ... but that's ok. i'll be back!
