It began with a burger. In 2001, entrepreneur Quentin Love wanted to improve his Chicago community by opening a business that would not only create much-needed jobs, but also help his neighbors lead healthier lives. To this aim, he opened his first restaurant, which centered on his newest, healthiest recipe: the jive turkey burger, a bunned treat smothered in grilled onions that contained a fraction of the fat of its beef-laden brethren. The burger proved so popular he began experimenting with a whole range of comfort fare reimagined with turkey. By serving dishes such as turkey tacos, turkey stir-fry, and turkey chops smothered in gravy and onions, Turkey Chop lends diners a healthier way to enjoy classic American eats. But unlike an oven caught in a November time warp, the kitchen has more than turkey—chicken, fish, shrimp, and vegetarian versions of many dishes still help guests avoid fat while savoring guilt-inducing flavors.
