Chef to plant kitchen garden for Pinstripes bistro
By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA
Now that spring has sprung, Pinstripes Executive Chef Cesar Gutierrez is ready to launch his outdoor produce and herb gardens at several of the restaurants, sharing the bounty with the location at 7 Oakbrook Center Mall. Just in time for National Herb Week from May 3 to 9, Gutierrez will plant 10 herbs and vegetables in organic soil on the outdoor patios for maximum sunlight exposure.
Gutierrez will bring the garden environment to the bistro at Pinstripes by cooking with these house-grown, all-natural ingredients in his small plates, salads and dishes for both lunch and dinner dining. Garden items include: Swiss chard, peppers, scallions, oregano, zucchini blossoms, cucumbers, lettuce and squash.
The ingredients turn up in such dishes as:
Basil and Heirloom Tomatoes- Caprese Salad ($13)
Rosemary- Chicken & Goat Cheese Fusilli ($13)
Grape Tomatoes- Chop Salad ($11)
Thyme- House made pesto and bread (complimentary)
The outdoor patios at Pinstripes are outdoor entertainment areas offering patio dining, fire pits, lounge chairs and bocce courts.
