“Names like Prairie Fruits Farm, Hidden Springs Creamery and Shepherd’s Way Farms sound like they belong in a Laura Ingalls Wilder novel,” noted Food & Wine magazine as it took in Marion Street Cheese Market’s array of artisan and farmstead cheeses. Since 2004, owner Eric Larson has vetted a staggering array of traditional farms for the market’s collection of cheeses from small and independent dairies throughout Chicagoland and the world. Back at the shop, resident cheesemongers slice Cowgirl Creamery brie and Rogue River blue to order right off the wheel for optimum freshness. These join chorizo and heritage prosciutto on charcuterie platters, or headline dishes in Marion Street’s Bistro, a 2013 Michelin Bib Gourmand award winner. In the bistro’s dining room and on the seasonal patio, the slow-food menu comes to life with locally sourced dishes such as warm chèvre salad and rabbit pot pie. For shoppers looking to stock their own larder with culinary sundries, Marion Street Cheese Market lines its shelves with gourmet groceries, such as handmade chocolates, elegant jams, and hand-stuffed olives.

Karen Gruber founded The Perfect Dinner to confront the dilemma she saw facing “working, commuting, chauffeuring moms”: either burn out trying to cook after long days, or grab fast food and end up feeling guilty. The Perfect Dinner aims to break the cycle with crowd-pleasing family dinners made fresh each day and available for pickup or delivery. Convenient containers can go straight into the oven, microwave, or refrigerator, with three size options ensuring that there's enough for all family members and any dishwashers demanding sustenance. Each day's menu is marked to clarify which items accommodate special diets, including gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, and nut-free choices. The Perfect Dinner also caters feasts with platters, plated dinners, casual party fare, and other options tailored for each event, whether hosts need assorted quiches for a brunch event or 20 flank-steak sliders to fuel cheers during badminton matches.

Jerusalem Cafe's cooks draw on the rich culinary history of the eponymous city as they stuff pitas, spread hummus, and grill kebabs. Baba gannouj, tabbouleh, and falafels greet taste buds warmly, and shish kebabs of lamb and beef calm rumbling stomachs before they erupt with vitriol about the difficulty of finding a flattering cummerbund. Gulps of fresh juice yield flavors of carrot, celery, and apple, and blenders turn uptight berries into party-ready smoothies.

Named one of Chicago Magazine's Top 10 hottest restaurants, The Kinderhook Tap earns local laud with a menu of farmers'-market vegetables, all-natural meats, and rotating regional microbrews. Carousers can clink mugs over appetizers such as the Green Line quesadillas, where spinach tortillas envelop cheddar and jack cheese melted with green onions and pico de gallo. For the main course, a robust Kinderhook burger—formed with sustainably raised Seven Sons grass-fed beef—satisfies ravenous carnivores and comforts teeth with a blanket of cheddar cheese and a soft-pretzel bun. Chef Laura's giant crab cake scuttles across taste buds with wild-caught claw meat and a napa-fennel slaw. Ever-changing draft beers wash down comestibles, feting fall with a 16-ounce Dogfish Head Punkin ale or celebrating the invention of microscopic sledgehammers with a cold pour of Two Brothers Atom Smasher.
