Best Farm Dinners

July 11, 2011 2:00 PM

City Provisions

Not to say that there are a shortage of fabulous restaurants here in Chicago for you to spend your hard earned moolah, but if you are searching for a fancy dinner, a farm dinner is a great way to go. I’m not usually in the business of spending a small fortune on a meal, but this my friends, is worth it.

The farm dining movement has taken root among foodies all around the country. It’s a pricey endeavor for sure, but also a great option if you‘re looking to celebrate a special occasion. I know some of you (including me) will not be able to take a vacation this summer, and if you’re a fan of food, why not plan a small “staycation” around a dining event?

How often do you have the chance to interact with your farmer and enjoy a candle-lit meal outdoors, just a stone’s throw from where your food was grown?

Save your kale pals. This is going to be good.
