Why is it important to offer locally sourced foods?
“Buying local is important because to use what’s in season provides the freshest and best flavors. It’s also important to support the local economy. We utilize local farmers markets and farms and plan our menus around what’s available. We don’t use produce out of season because the quality isn’t there and prices are higher,” says Mark Grosz, Oceanique in Evanston, IL

List of local ingredients and sources:

  • First Orchards – Eggplant, tomatoes and peaches
  • Nichols Farms – Heirloom carrots, mushrooms, Tropea onions, leeks and basil
