I had the opportunity to try the lunch menu and for starters, I had butternut squash soup and deviled egg and for the main dish, seared salmon and mustard maple glazed Amish chicken, all sourced from local farms in Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. For dessert, I had an avocado brownie that’s made with no dairy–just a well balanced substitute with avocado.

I'm a Caracas native, living in Chicago. I have a passion for travel, culture, food, adventure and discovering new places off the beaten path. I still remember the first trip I took internationally as a child and the excitement that it was to know that everyone will speak another language. Traveling was cool—waking up early to make the trip to the airport, packing too much and then realizing it’s much better to pack light. Now a travel writer, I get to see new places continually, check out new restaurants, and talk about my experiences. Just as I’m about to be done with a trip, I see myself at the airport daydreaming while staring at the departure board thinking about my next destination.
