Green buildings are LEED® certified and your household products can have the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval®. Food now can be SPE Certified® which means "health through food."
When you dine on SPE Certified meals, you can be sure that they are of the utmost nutritional quality without compromising taste. Chefs in a SPE Certified restaurant are preparing seasonal, nutritious and delicious food. Where do you get it in Chicago? I'll meet you at State & Lake Chicago Tavern in theWit hotel.
Executive Chef Evan Percoco offers satisfying Midwestern American fare, sourced regionally. The SPE breakfast menu includes Michigan Farm Apple Smoothie with apple, kale, almond milk and honey wheat germ; an egg white omelet packed with squash, dino kale, farro and goat cheese, sided with potatoes and toast; or how about a cottage cheese parfait for a real protein punch?
Stop by for lunch and try the SPE Certified dishes such as Giant Lima Bean Salad; seared salmon, butternut squash soup topped with housemade lamb bacon, pumpkin seed pesto and candied fennel. Deviled eggs are not just trendy but super healthy here: they're capped with a chip of duck bacon and sit on a melange of wild rice.
Dinner offers a number of the items also available at lunch like herbs 'n' greens and a Bibb salad but also pan seared Lake Superior whitefish and mustard maple glazed Amish chicken. Dessert? How about an avocado brownie with raspberry fudge sorbet sound? Delish without a drop of butter or cream.
You really can eat modern, inventive food that is certifiably healthy and delicious.
