Farmhouse wanted their Midwestern roots to be obvious, and to accomplish this they've salvaged much of the restaurant from local Chicago homes, restaurants and the like. They also created a long menu of great Midwestern craft beer, and included some Michigan wine for good measure. While the owners are rumored to have anticipated more of a bar scene than restaurant for Farmhouse, they soon found out local ingredients fused into tasty dishes are also in high demand.
With their daily and weekly specials displayed up on a chalkboard, and the menu sourcing high quality local purveyors, Farmhouse delivers on its mission. We started with the fried cheese curds because of the breathy words spoken about them, and they delivered in all their fried glory.
Next up for me was the trout, while the husband went with the doted upon Amish roasted chicken. I was trying to balance the decadence of fried cheese curds with something a little bit kinder to my waistline, but come next time I think I will just embrace what Farmhouse does best: comfort foods at their finest. I was lucky to be able to snag a bite of the chicken, and found it to be just as insanely delicious and buttery as I’d heard it to be. I wouldn’t normally go to a restaurant and order the chicken, but Farmhouse is my one exception.
We topped the evening off with the spiced fig and toffee bread pudding, and I was in dessert heaven. Farmhouse makes for a great River North hangout spot, a tasty meal of comfort foods, and a great atmosphere to stay a while and try some of the different craft beers.
