Buying locally sourced ingredients is an easy way to support the community, unlike filling fire hydrants with beer or making every citizen comayor. Eat your way to a clear conscience with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary American fare and drinks at erwin, located in Lakeview.
erwin culls a range of seasonal, market-driven American fare from local sources when possible to ensure freshness and fill out an eclectic menu that helped the eatery garner a Michelin award. Starters such as roasted beets ($8) provide a delicious lipstick substitute for those who forget their smile paint, and the syllabus of freshly prepared entrees includes the Scottish salmon ($26) and the spicy crab cakes ($25). By presenting mélanges of produce in the form of such entrees as a braised cabbage, lentils, and relish dish ($17), erwin opens its metaphorical arms to dedicated vegetarians. The restaurant also serves weekend brunches, wherein patrons can order a lox platter ($12) or eggs benedict ($10). Drinks such as a glass of the 2009 Chilean ventisquero ($11), one of many internationally sourced vinos, pair well with hearty meals or prewine-stained suits, and erwin's family-friendly atmosphere encourages kinship-strengthening noshing.
