Me and Giuseppe at Ceres' Table
More Chicago fun. Got to visit my friends new restaurant Ceres' Table. It was great!! My friend Giuseppe Scurato and his wife Carolyn opened this little gem. Fresh, local and really solid. The arancini appetizers were especially amazing. Everything on his menu has been really thought out, and I loved how reasonably priced everything was. I have had the pleasure of eating at other restaurants he has worked at in Chicago, but it was special to visit him in his very own space. Still thinking about the tomato water with the hand made goat cheese ravioli....
Today we went to Millenium Park so the kids could run around in the fountain and play under the "bean" sculpture. I thought it was a curious place to take photos. We also made a very important visit to the American Girl Doll Store to pick up outfits. Holy crap that place is a phenomenon. Tomorrow more catching up with more friends and then winding the trip down. Tonight we took the girls to a fancy dinner at Graham Elliot Restaurant (not worth the hype!) and then to an old school ice cream parlor. M had her first hot fudge sundae!
