Restaurant Review: John’s Place

Hi everyone,

Hope you had a great weekend!  Mine was really good, but nothing too crazy!  I stayed in on Friday, went out on Saturday, went shopping Saturday day time and went to the gym, laid out and read my book on Sunday.  I also managed to not buy anything on Saturday which is major for me!   I went out for lunch on Saturday to a restaurant in Lincoln Park called John’s Place.  When Meredith and I realized it was nice out, we wanted to go somewhere with outdoor seating since we figured we probably don’t have too much warm weather left (sad).   I have been to John’s Place a few times before and have always really liked the food.  They have great burgers and sandwiches and sweet potato fries and ½ price cocktails on Fridays!  One thing I had never had there was a salad and that was what I was in the mood for, so I ordered the chopped chicken salad.

The food came in a decent amount of time, not super fast but that was okay since we were enjoying the nice day.  The salad was really good—sometimes I will order a salad at a restaurant and end up really disappointed because I can make salads better at home, but this one I really enjoyed.  I always like chopped salads because normally that is something that I’m too lazy to do at home.   This one had chicken, goat cheese, tomato, dried cherries and the lettuce was a mix of lettuce, cabbage and broccoli slaw.  I thought it was delicious and I think the dried cherries made it.

Mer had an apple, goat cheese and chicken salad and added bacon.  Her salad looked awesome and made me wish I could eat bacon.  Boo.

All in all a great restaurant—I have never been disappointed with what I have gotten here, it is always great!  Beware though that it is a family establishment.  There are always a lot of kids/babies everytime I go here—like a lot, especially on Sunday’s.  Obviously this is fine, but if you are not in the mood for a screaming baby at the table next to you for whatever reason (like being hungover just as an example), you might want to look for a less kid-oriented place.

Besides having kind of a dumb name, I can’t find any fault with the place so far!  If you live in the area, it is a great brunch or casual dinner spot.

This post has got to be short because I have a final dr’s appt for my hip in a few minutes.

Have a great night!


P.S.  Missoni for Target starts TOMORROW!  Is anyone else as excited as I am?
