Cozy Little Hutch Delivers The Goods

logoSometimes you have a taste for something, but you don’t know what you want. You’re tired of pizza, had it with Chinese, and will scream if you see one more drive thru. For those occasions  there are the cute little eateries that spread the wealth with original dishes. One of these places is Hutch.

Hutch is sandwiched between Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, and Boystown. With it’s picture windows, diners can view pedestrians and canine creatures while they eat. Its homey decor beckons the gourmet with the wooden chairs and tables. Its best to start with a libation and there were a lot to choose from. I chose a yummy blood orange mint iced tea, it was so refreshing and fresh. It was a great non-alcoholic choice!

The food here is so fresh and flavorful. Everything is made from scratch. As the appetizers were brought to us I couldn’t wait to try them. Bubbling hot in the pan, was Skillet shrimp with its tangy creole butter and plenty of bread for dipping. Nom nom! I couldn’t stop talking about the pork wings. The Loisy glaze was billed as spicy, but I thought of it more as a sweet treat. Hutch prides themselves on their flat breads and salads. The BLT flat bread was good, (no it wasn’t what you’d think a BLT was) BLT stands for bacon jam, tomato, arugula and balsamic. I fell in love with the Hutch Salad. Such an original creation with it’s pears, goat cheese, hazel nut brittle all on mixed greens with a champagne vinaigrette . They describe their burger as being great, and it sure was! The caramelized onions meshed with the white cheddar and what made it was the special sauce. Even the french fries were special  with their house made giadinera ketchup, ketchup with a kick!

Hutch had the prefect ending to a prefect day. We finished off our meal with two of the most  tantalizing desserts you could imagine. Holding on to last taste of summer, I chose Strawberry Shortcake and Jen chose the Chocolate Ding cake. The strawberry shortcake reminded me of  an old fashioned short bread cake. Delicious! The ding cake was fashioned to look like a Hostess cupcake with a moist chocolate cake and creamy filling.Following this we retired to the beautiful Hotel Lincoln for the night.

Hutch is located at 3301 N Clark St. They also have brunch goodies as well, so for a quiet place to meet and eat, Hutch fits the bill!
