I finally visited the Chicago French Market! Can you believe it? I've been wanting to go here for a few years, but it's just not convenient to get to from work, and it's closed on Sundays. But I am glad that I finally got to see it.
There were so many good places to eat at the French Market, and I really wish I was close enough to go during my lunch break! It helped relieve my itch to travel to France just a little bit. Not much, but just a little bit.
On my way home from work Friday, I stopped at the Park Hyatt Hotel lobby to check out the Chocolate Pop-up shop from Executive Pastry Chef Meg Galus at NoMI. Since I usually don't frequent these restaurants very much, but wish I could every day, I was pretty happy to get some stuff and bring it home to try!
I kind of wanted to try one of everything, but it was a little pricey, so I chose the chocolate chocolate croissant, chocolate chip cookie, and the chocolate crumble pudding. They were all SOO good. It was a nice little treat to share over the weekend.
I'm really hoping that next weekend will actually be the first warm weekend, and it will be so lovely. I can't wait to just sit outside on the deck and read! And walk places without a jacket! And not wear winter sweaters to work!
