  • Blind Faith Cafe
    Blind Faith Café vaunts a vault of vegetarian cuisine with enough enticing eats to potentially convert even the most stubborn of steak-eaters. Starters on the spring 2010 dinner menu include roasted vegetable hummus ($5.50) and guacamole with corn chips and crudités ($8.50), while, sandwichally speaking, the barbecue seitan sandwich ($12.50) slathers the wheat gluten in sauce and sides it with Carolina slaw and choice of salad or fries. Blind Faith Café's entrees pull from global influences: the Kung Pao ($14) offers Szechwan-glazed gardein sautéed with ginger, garlic, and peanuts, and the enchiladas verdes ($14) roll up corn, potato, and sour cream in savory sleeping bags topped with jack cheese, guacamole, and salsa verde. For dessert, try the peanut-butter-chocolate cake ($7.50), or simply order another round of wine or beer as you regale fellow diners with yet another story about how you were raised by a pack of windsocks.

  • LYFE Kitchen - Evanston
    Love Your Food Everyday is what LYFE Kitchen stands for. And it's a mission that permeates everything from the food's sources to the atmosphere it's served in. Step inside any location and you'll find a menu full of humanely sourced meats and organic ingredients a well as dining rooms with comfy couches, recycled fixtures, and LEED-certified appliances. It's a vast departure from any other quick-service restaurant for all those reasons and one more important one: its highly lauded food is the result of genius strokes by executive chefs Art Smith?a Top Chef Masters alum who spent a decade as Oprah's personal chef?and Charlie Trotter alum Jeremy Bringardner. At breakfast, the menu opens with a savory spinach-and-avocado frittata and quinoa-buttermilk pancakes sweetened with fresh berries. Later, lunch and dinner offer just as much diversity with casual unfried buffalo chicken strips (a variation on one of Oprah's favorites) and an elegant grass-fed steak in garlic-parsley jus. Each dish is as flavorful as it is health conscious, an overall approach that's helped LYFE Kitchen expand to more than 15 national outposts and haul in acclaim from Refinery29, Zagat, the New York Times, and anyone who's furiously licked a plate clean there.

  • Chop It Up
    Time Out Chicago Kids raves about the strawberry lemonade flavor. Chicago magazine claims the "coconut tastes fresh from the tree." And Michael Mednick, owner and founder of Anthony's Italian Ice, which has been open for more than 20 years, knows exactly why. After a stint selling name-brand ices, an unsatisfied Mednick decided to test his Italian ice-making talents by tossing fresh fruits into an old ice-making machine. A series of trials, errors, and brain freezes finally led Mednick to the sweet spot he holds today: manning his own Southport store, where he churns out 25 decadent Italian ice flavors⎯such as lemon, mango, and peach⎯from scratch. Though Italian ice is Anthony’s big draw, the shop also purveys smooth ice cream produced by fellow Chicago shop Bobtail, and offsets dessert appetites with Italian beef sandwiches, locally made soups, and Chicago-style hot dogs.

  • Protein Bar
    It’s a wonder the staffers at Protein Bar have time to do anything but smile for the camera amid the maelstrom of media attention the eatery has received in recent years. The man at the center of the storm is founder Matt Matros, dubbed one of Crain’s Chicago Business’s most successful 40 Under 40 in 2012. Matros spend his youth struggling with his weight, and lost his father to a heart attack before his 22nd birthday. The shock sparked a renewed hunger for life in the young executive, who went on to shed 50 pounds through exercise and healthy eating. Along the way, Matt noticed a gaping hole in the world of fast food—where were the healthy options? He decided to throw his corporate career to the wind and pour his entire life savings into opening the first Protein Bar, a welcoming haven for the health-conscious eater. Matros’ business soon flourished into eight Chicago locations, with three more in D.C. His aim was to cut out the junk that pervades fast-food chains—refined sugars, hydrogenated oils, empty calories, and unsettling cartoon characters—and replace it with lean protein, heart-healthy fiber, and satisfying flavor. The menu accomplishes just that. At breakfast, bowls are filled with oatmeal deemed some of the finest in the city by CBS Chicago. As the hours wear on, a special mix of six types of veggies builds each salad into a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Bar-ritos swap out calorie-heavy rice for quinoa and flour tortillas for hearty whole-wheat wraps. Signature blended drinks omit sugary additives for protein mixes and fruit, each named for a Chicago neighborhood, and bowls of warm, organic quinoa come topped with protein and fresh produce.
