In Season: Spring Peas

In Season: Spring Peas

Apr 24, 2018

Spring has sprung and with the change in the season, our chefs have beautiful green veggies on their minds including one of our favorite little green guys: Peas! While you may have (haunting) memories from your childhood of being forced to shovel a pile of peas into your mouth before you got dessert, our chefs have elevated the ingredient in a way we’re sure you’ll love this time around.

Check out the below dishes, and #peas come visit soon!

We know, Avocado Toast can be #basic. But, the team at Beatrix isn’t ready to let go of it just yet! For breakfast and brunch, take a bite into their new spring variation of the Avocado & Pea Toast.

Spring may be here, but that doesn’t mean soup has to go anywhere. Chef CJ Jacobson from Ema is dishing out Chilled Spring Pea Soup with mint and fennel pesto, lemon, and pecorino romano.

Pan Roasted Alaskan Halibut from Shaw’s Crab House in Chicago served with Yukon gold & purple potatoes, English peas and garlic potatoes sauce.

Did someone say brioche croutons?! Find them in the Spring Pea Soup with herbed ricotta and extra virgin olive oil at Beatrix.

 

Spring Peas are a big part of the mezze menu at Ema. Try the Pea Tendril Tabbouleh with tomatoes, hazelnuts, bulgur, mint and parsley or the signature Avocado & Sweet Pea Spread at Ema.

Spring peas on our menus (hopefully) means patio season. Here are all of our patios where you can dine al fresco this season.
