“Whole-animal cooking” in Evanston (Illinois) – Found Kitchen and Social House

Always looking for places to eat in Evanston since our son is a junior at Northwestern and this suggestion comes today courtesy of the New York Times travel section: Found Kitchen and Social House at 1631 Chicago Ave. (847-868-8945) although wish the place took reservations! “Haute-but-homey” “seasonal small plates” “fracophile bent with whole-animal cooking.” (Whole-animal cooking? This presumably means eating the whole animal – including the heart and liver.)  I’ll skip the “pickled beef hearts with deviled eggs, beets and baby greens” but this sounds good: “chicken liver mouse with bacon marmalade and toast!” Also run by daughter of Morton’s Steak House owner…Gotta like the restaurant’s “social mission” below…

Found’s social mission, to “hire and train people coming out of homelessness” as a stepping stone to living more independent lives is fundamental to our philosophy.  The restaurant also stays mindful of the environment by repurposing found objects, recycling, composting, and supporting Evanston-area farms and businesses whenever possible.
