Yep, The Gale Street Inn has an AWESOME neon sign. Making you feel like you might be stepping into the 1960’s. And, yes, this same sign indicates that the restaurant has Chicago’s finest: Ribs, Steaks and Seafood.
At this point, you might be wondering, why would someone, with so much Veggie Love, go into a joint like this??? Well, read on folks, read on…
I sat down at the table with some swell, non vegetarian friends. While glancing at the menu, I came across some items that looked splendid. The Veggie Potato Skins and House Salad, drew me in quickly.
Since I wasn’t doing any fried foods at the time, The Grilled Vegetable Portabella Sandwich was out.
(Girl can’t eat a sandwich without fries…Duh?!)
It did look yummy though…With it’s roasted peppers, spinach, mozzarella, and chipolte crema on a ciabatta roll. Mhhhmm…
Then came the heavy hitters for all you non veg-heads: Da Burgers, Da Surf, Da Turf and Da Ribs.
Not quite for me but wait for it…The BEST is en route…Please read on…
In super little print, at the bottom of the menu was what I thought, to be my savior for the night:
The Sides. French Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, Au Gratin Potatoes, Twice Baked Potato, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Grilled Vegetables and Sauteed Spinach. #NomNomNomNomNom
I was ALL ready to get a House Salad and Garlic Mashed Potatoes and call it a night and then…
First thing I told the lovely server gal was, “Hey, I know I’m in steak joint but, I am indeed, a Vegetarian.” It was cute because her face got all lit up to tell me about something, not listed on the menu. …drum roll please…It was one of the BEST pasta dishes, I’ve ever had!
A HUGE bowl of colorful vegetables mixed in with a bit of multi-colored fettuccine noodles. The vegetables we’re fresh and cooked perfectly. Carrots, Broccoli, Zucchini, Asparagus, and of course, I had to add fresh garlic to it… All in a simple, but tasty, olive oil sauce. Not too heavy, ALL PERFECT!
I kinda forgot to mention, one of the BEST House Salads…Since when does a steak joint put Kale anywhere on a menu?! The Gale Street Inn does! Spinach and Romaine lettuce, Kale, Cabbage and Carrots…Delish… Add some creamy garlic dressing and voila, perfection.
Ps: Don’t forget to get the fresh baked bread with some crazy GOOD honey butter-ish stuff.
Side Note: Was introduced to the BEST Scotch, I’ve had. “Highland Park, Dark Origins.”
