Ferris and Jack

Location: 166 E Superior
Cost: About $15 per person

With summer comes the occasional friend returning to home on some sort of professional school vacation. Steve fit the bill the other week and the we gathered a small crew to grab lunch. Jeremy and I had just moved to River North, and the Professor works right near us too. So all we needed was some spot none of us had been to between the Water Tower and the Tribune Building. I'd heard about some new place that filled the void that C-house left in the Mile North Hotel which is how we ended up at Ferris and Jack.

Ferris and Jack has a standard hotel restaurant setup with a little cafe in the front and a bunch of seating in the back. Obviously during a middle of the week lunch, there was no wait. Also, they were able to accommodate the Professor's tight work schedule with some quick service. The cost is pretty reasonable. To give you an idea, my steak salad was $9.

The Food
Steve ordered the Cheeseburger, Jeremy got the Brat, and the Professor and I each ordered the Steak Salad. The burger was cooked properly and served on a simple, buttery bun. The fries were a little dry and grainy though. The steak salad was solid. There was a lot of meat over a bed of spinach with corn, tomatoes, and a light vinaigrette. It was light but filling, and given the excessive heat that day, it was probably the most appropriate thing to order. Jeremy's Brat was good, but kind of ridiculous. They serve the sausage in a trio as an appetizer, and the whole entree serving is actually just three of the mini sausages on a bun.

The Steak Salad

I think I've got an inherent bias against most hotel restaurants. The steak salad was delicious, but otherwise things were pretty average. If I get tired of all of the new dining options in the hospital and can step out for a bit, I'll probably go back. I'm giving them 3 out of 5 Pearls.
