Market House on the Square

I popped in the Market House ( 655 Forest Ave, Lake Forest) today for the first time since it changed hands to have a quick salad. To my surprise, this was one of the best salads I’ve had in a long time.

Executive Chef Dominic Zumpano created his own magical take on the classic wedge and combined lettuce with a simple blue cheese dressing and huge chunks of blue cheese, candied bacon and tiny, fresh tomatoes. Yes, this wedge is now my new favorite.

I created the same stunning salad in my kitchen tonight.

What was so different about this wedge? Using a lettuce other than iceberg was something I would have never tried.

Don’t you love a chef who gets you thinking about the never-ending possibilities...which  is one of the many reasons I go out to eat in the first place.

Bon Appetit!
