Lyfe Kitchen

$$$$(312) 933-1035

What happens when you spend time in life slinging Big Mac’s as the global president of McDonald’s? You have a mid-life crisis and leave to start a healthy fast-casual chain with the help of Oprah’s former personal chef. America. The result is Lyfe Kitchen, a place that does a good job serving healthier items like edamame hummus, salads, and even sandwiches and fish tacos. The menu has calories listed, so you know they mean business. Lyfe is great for food on-the-go but it’s also nice enough inside that it’s often more enjoyable to eat there and maybe even have a glass of wine if you’d like.
