For years, I’ve passed The Kitchen on my walk to work each morning and every time I’ve passed it, the same thought crept into my brain= I need to check out that menu. After about 300+ times of thinking that since October 2014, I finally crept on the webpage at work and knew immediately I’d need to actually go in-rather than walk by.
With all of the different types and modifications of alcohol over the years, I don’t know how I’ve survived all of the temptations over the years. I’ve truly never really been into beer, frozen margs, super fruity drinks, etc.. From when I began drinking to even now, I’ve always enjoyed liquor focused beverages, more than the “cute” drinks or heavier brews. And I must say, knowing what I know now about alcohol and its “nutritional” content, sticking to stiffer drinks has actually been my saving grace.
I realize that I’ve produced a few posts related to anti-juice cleanses. However, with my recent tummy problems and constant bloating – I began to research different types of cleanses to partake in. Although I really do not like drinking juice for three days and starve as I watch my hubs-to-be eat real food, my normal detox/food aids were not helping. My number one requirement when searching was finding a product that doesn’t leave me feel STARVING/miserable/grumpy. As I was about to give up, I remembered this small store in Lincoln Park I used to live by – City Press Juice.
The Behind the Scenes series entails insight from behind the chef’s counter and a restaurant’s outlook of its past, present, and future.
After months and months of nailing down a date to try out this new hot-spot, the hubs-to-be and I found some time to hop on the blue line to Bucktown. Although easy to miss from the outside, Presidio‘s menu is anything but forgettable.
