Summer Harvest Celebration Menu & A Gift to Sustainability
Each time a dish from Executive Chef Marc Bernard's Summer Harvest menu is ordered, Big Bowl and Freebird chicken will donate $1 to a to Growing Home, an urban farming organization providing community devlopment, job training and employment, particularly to those with barriers to entering the workforce. The nonprofit's local farms, often located in blighted areas, are providing organically grown produce to Chicago Big Bowl restaurants.
Freebird is the ideal partner to support the Summer Harvest Celebration and the restaurant's mission of Building Good Food. It supplies Big Bowl with all natural chicken, humanely raised on family-owned farms with room to roam, and never given antibiotics or other drugs.
The special harvest menu features: Spicy Eggplant and Chicken wok tossed with sungold tomatoes in a spicy Sichuan sauce; Thai corn & crab soup, Thai summer corn and chicken (wok tossed with a spicy lemon sauce) and sweet corn and coconut gelato with blueberry lemon sauce.
