Not much to report in the way of local businesses, as I was out of town for about half the week.
Green Leaf Restaurant: What can I say, it's conveniently located across the street from where I work, and has delicious grilled cheese.
Edzo's Burger Shop: This one is not local to where I live. Ed and I stumbled upon it while we were adventuring just outside of Chicago over the weekend, and it was TOO GOOD not to mention. We *might* have gone a little overboard on the amount of food we ordered, but it's not often that we find ourselves in Evanston, so whatev. Delicious burgers (Ed had the char burger, I had a griddled single), delicious and creative fries (we had an order of old fries, which are really just super cooked and brown, as well as truffle fries), delicious shakes (we split a chocolate). Open from 10:30am until 4:30pm, so that the owner and employees can make it home to have dinner with their families in the evening (LOVE that!).
