Local, organic fare now available at the Lincoln Park Zoo!

Mediterranean Salad

All-organic ingredients, locally-grown produce when available, sandwiches made to order. Sounds divine, right? The Cafe at the Wild Things! at the Lincoln Park Zoo has opened for the season with a brand-new menu, and as you can probably tell, it's not your standard zoo fare.

This morning, I had the pleasure of attending a tasting of all of the menu items, and I was shocked at how good this stuff is. I actually had hard time picking my favorite (I think I'm leaning towards the panini filled with aged bleu cheese, carmelized onions and arugula). Bread is from Chicago-favorite Red Hen, pastries are from Bleeding Heart Bakery, and much of the produce comes from farmers at the Green City Market.

Want to try the cafe? You're in luck! As a reader of Chicagomomiac, you are entitled to 15% off any one item. Simply click here to visit the secret page and print your coupon.
