50+ Elites and their guests took time out to breathe LYFE into their summer at LYFE Kitchen, one of Evanston's hottest new restaurants. Guests enjoyed delicious wine and raved about the specialty smoothies like kale banana, healthy flatbreads and grilled artichokes, chocolate budino dessert with pomegranate chia seeds, and vegan chocolate chip cookies. Dining gift certificates were raffled off, and LYFE herb seed packets were a memorable takeaway. Owner Carey Cooper personally welcomed guests, and Aine O'Brien and her team made the night a smashing success. Executive Chef, Jeremy Bringardner, recent winner of Food Network's Chopped, flew in from California and graced everyone with his presence... now that's a highlight! Read the reviews of the event here and two sets of photos here and here.

Have I told you lately how much I LOVE Yelp?!?! Our CM rocks! Angela set up this great event for us elites. I took hubby and even he said at the end, "this was one of my favorite events!"

LYFE staff and owners were there to meet and greet. They were so accommodating. They explained all the dishes and told us a bit of history about the place.

There was plenty to eat and drink. It was all so healthy and tasted so good. The quinoa bowl was my favorite, but the salads, guac, and flatbreads did not disappoint.

Hubby and I said we will be back. We have a veggie daughter and a gluten free niece and felt this place would be perfect for all of us to meet up for a nice casual dinner.

They also cater, so I am looking into that for a vegetarian get together.

Yum, yum, yum...
