My husband and I love taking a free day and just heading out on a drive - a couple of weeks ago - we took off and decided to start our drive with lunch somewhere new to us -
We decided to try Ruth's Parkside Cafe - it's in the American Can Building. The building has an interesting history - it's been turned into loft apartments now. I think it would be a really cool building to live in!
The artwork is interesting...some of it is a bit jarring...
The Fish Cakes ($9.50) were pan seared and served with steamed spinach, curry buerre blanc and a golden raisin/cranberry compote. Well - you can see that's what I chose. I thought it sounded so unique and it was. Unfortunately - I didn't like it. I don't know - it didn't taste bad - it just didn't taste good. I ate one cake - it was very filling - and I just didn't want any more. I think the fish part was just bland - and not really identifiable as to what kind of fish.
Why Should You Go? Well - I didn't love it. Larry was fine with what he got - but it was pretty expensive for lunch. I didn't like those Fish Cakes. If you're a vegetarian - it's a must-stop place because they have SO many vegetarian options. If I go back - I'll try the burrito. :-)
