Chicago Tribune FOOD BOWL: Au Cheval & St. JOHN Burger Collaboration
Aug
18
to Aug 25

Chicago Tribune FOOD BOWL: Au Cheval & St. JOHN Burger Collaboration

It's officially Chicago Tribune FOOD BOWL and we're celebrating with a special collaboration burger between Au Cheval and London's "snout to tail" pioneers St. JOHN, available only from August 18-25 at Au Cheval's West Loop location. 

The speciality burger lays the foundation of two classic 4 ounce patties and a house-made bun, while St. JOHN radically reinterprets the notion of "condiments" by adding watercress, minced red onion, pickled walnut dressing and Welsh Rarebit which, we would like to point out, is a lot closer to fondue than rabbit.
