“once upon a time there was a little southern girl who loved food above all other worldly pleasures. As soon as she was old enough to stand on a chair and reach the counter, she could be found in the kitchen with a cloud of flour swirling around her…”
Blackberry Market opened a town over a few weeks ago, and it’s quickly become my new favorite restaurant in the area (I’ve been three times this week!). Not only is it as cute as can be (look at those green chairs! and the beautiful ceilings!), but the menu is to die for. Grilled ham and brie sandwich, house made blackberry vinaigrette, roasted corn and poblano soup, blackberry brownies, those cupcakes, grilled turkey and gouda…I could go on and on. It’s like they got in my head and made my favorites, it’s a little creepy if you think about it too hard.
Plus, it’s owned by Anna Davidson, a local mom with connections all over town (and she’s employed a few of my friends from school!), so if you’re from the area you’re pretty much guaranteed to see a familiar face every time you drop by. If you live in the Glen Ellyn area, you’ve got to step in. Check out their website and their Facebook page and their Indiegogo page for more information…and stop in! You won’t be sorry.
