Yay! Browntrout, Mixteco Grill and La Creperie

I feel like such a foodie. LOL.  I've actually been to quite a few of the restaurants on  Michelin's Bib Gourmand winner's list.    Here is the article from Chicago Tribune.

Apparently Michelin's little elves go ... "Under cover of darkness Tuesday night, ... stealthily sprayed the image of Bibendum (the formal name of the Michelin Man, from a Latin phrase meaning, "Now, let's drink") on the sidewalks in front of 46 Chicago restaurants."  

 So of course, I had to run over and take a picture!   Who knew that the Michelin Man had a name?

My all time favorite restaurant, Browntrout,  uses sustainable foods and even grows their own herbs.  And we were just there last Friday to celebrate my birthday! 

La Creperie is a crepe place... of course!  And, I celebrated my birthday on Thursday with a friend there.   It is a bit of a no-no for me since ....well, crepe's are usually made of wheat.  They do have a buckwheat option which is quite good and I usually do that. (at least it's gluten free and non-grain.) 

The trifecta would have been complete if we had gone to Mixteco at any point last week...does it count that I talked about it on Saturday in Indiana? ;)

I'm just so happy that restaurants I love are getting recognized.  I hope this doesn't mean that I won't be able to go there again because they will be too busy.

  1. "Who knew that the Michelin Man had a name?" - I worked there for 6 years. I knew - and I would have told you the whole story about him if you'd have asked =)
