Food running! Lincoln Square, Edgewater business owners donate for schools

The Atlantic Bar and Grill owner Cathal Lynch and son.
 I spent Sunday morning picking up food donations from several local haunts. Over 20 Lincoln Square, Edgewater and North Center restaurants donated food for the 15th Annual Friends of the Grape fest.  It was a reminder of the cool places and people surrounding my neighborhood.  You can have a lot of fun on a Sunday morning!

I was running a little early sooooo... I had a pint with some early morning soccer fans.  Atlantic is a great soccer pub.
Good morning! Cafe Selmarie a few blocks from St. Matthias steps up with some goodies and gift certificates

I stopped at Rockwell's Neighborhood Grill in Ravenswood Gardens about 10am for a monster brownie pick-up.  Rockwell's has one of the more creative and fun menus in the area! Very San Francisco with a very local Chicago tavern vibe. I always get the fish tacos.

My next stop was Fireside Restaurant on North Ravenswood in Edgewater around 10:30am. Fireside always looks festive. It's great for a family meal or watching the games in the lounge. Thanks for the meatballs Rich!
Check out the Bloody Mary Bar at Fireside!
The awesome staff and fun atmosphere at Trattoria Trullo in Lincoln Square keeps our neighbors and school parents coming back!  Thanks for the food a wine donations!
My last stop around noon was at foodie quality Fork in Lincoln SquareThe location and brunch are fantastic. I picked up the bacon-wrapped dates, stuffed with chorizo & served with bleu cheese dressing for our event.
Busy Fork around Noon on Sunday. There are several great seating area... the back room, by the windows or at the bar!
Check out the list of this year's restaurant donors.  You may find a new favorite!
