Not sure what to say about this one. Morton salt is a strong salt. I saw a lot of kale go to the garage that night. The deviled eggs are not as good as you think, but they are beautiful.

Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of
Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The

here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic
mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also
find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred
