Blue Door used to be a small grab and go operation, but has since moved to a larger sit-down space in Lincoln Park. The food here is farm to table, and the menu definitely has a Midwestern feel to it. You’ll find artichoke dip, fried cheese curds, and potato dumplings, but they also have fantastic salads if you want to eat a little lighter. Lots of plants and little watering cans make the interior feel like a farmhouse, with a large skylight brightening up the space.
