A boxed lunch takes on a whole new meaning when it comes from Green Cuisine. This isn't your standard sad sandwich, apple, and cookie tossed into a box for a corporate event; these are sandwiches, wraps, and salads prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients for a palate used to the finer things. Take, for instance, a typical turkey sandwich boxed lunch: roasted turkey breast, field greens, red onions, and cranberry-walnut cream cheese on multigrain, paired with a choice of side, plus a cookie or brownie. That's just one of many options; strawberry walnut salads, thai chicken wraps, and vegetarian choices also can be featured.
Along with Green Cuisine's many catering options, which also include custom hot buffets, hors d'oeuvres, and other small plates perfect for social events, the chefs also add a little sweetness to the options with french macaroons. Indulge in chocolate, lemon, pistachio, and other flavors, which are good for any occasion, including holidays.
Since 1987, Fodrak's Gyros & Ribs has carved out a niche with every slice of its signature gyro, earning the Pioneer Press’s Best of Lake County award as the Best Place for Gyros four years running. Their chefs build innovative dishes from the classic greek staple, piling it onto gyros pizzas and slam-dunking it onto gyros cheeseburgers. Not to be upstaged, the menu’s supporting cast can also hold its own. Cooks drench baby-back ribs in barbecue sauce, hand cut french fries, and assemble Chicago-style hot dogs topped with all manner of fixings. Their culinary creativity extends to their six varieties of baked potato, which include spuds capped with gyros and sauce or bacon and cheese. Like the finale of the Nutcracker, traditionally performed on candy flutes, dinners end on a sweet note, with desserts such as banana shakes and homemade baklava.
Chicago's Pizza's menu boasts thin- and stuffed-crust pizzas alongside classic Chicago–style sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Specialty pizzas boast toppings such as ham, pepperoni, bacon, and sausage or tomato, onions, green peppers, and mushrooms. Chicago–style hot dogs are piled with toppings, and calzones reveal delectable fillings.

Since 1968, running D'Agostinos has been a family affair, like eating Thanksgiving dinner, or getting mad about Scrabble. First opened by Joe and Jan D'Agostino, the Wrigleyville corner pizzeria has grown to include three additional locations across Chicago, each of which is run by a member of the D'Agostino clan. Metromix sums up the appeal, comparing the restaurant to "an intimate Italian spot in a movie" complete with "snuggling couples, heaping servings of homemade pasta, [and] red-checked tablecloths." It’s in this setting that diners dig into specialty thin crust and deep dish pies scattered with fresh mushrooms, giardiniera, meatballs, eight types of cheese, and other toppings.
