Who’s joining me for dinner? Lol.
On a mission to find restaurants that deal with food allergies.
Decided to stop in my Favorite Marianos in Wheaton on this beautiful Saturday afternoon for a quick bite and to say hello to a few of my favorite employees.
I’ve known Sean Hartman for awhile and by far he is one of the best managers I’ve ever met. Although we’ll miss him at Bloomingdale, it’s nice to have him back in Wheaton.
As I was leaving I stopped over to try out this coconut water and I have to say that the Regular and Cherry coconut were absolutely amazing. Since I don’t drink pop or carbonated drinks and prefer natural ingredients this is the idea electrolyte water at only around $1.79 price point. Definitely recommend it for everyone, especially your kids!
I love attending all of Mariano’s Grand Openings. You meet some Amazing people!
Today, I met at least 7 New Vendors, including my Foodie Friends from Muchacha Salsa.
This location has the Wine bar (With an outside patio), sushi Bar, Todds Bbq, Truffle and Gelato and popcorn bar, Pizza and sandwich station, 2 grills, Starbucks, very large deli, meat and seafood counter and my favorite Cheese department with some of the most Delicious Cheeses! Of course this is in addition to the rest of their rather enormous market with plenty of gluten free and specialty American & ethnic foods.
Be sure to visit sometime soon and check out these Amazing local Vendors whose products you can find within the market. You can find them on FB, Instagram and the web at http://www.marianos.com
My Favorite New Item And a 1st for me. Spreadable Salami? Yes, please! Wow, did this have some great flavors!

I love the Olive Muffaletta and hot giardiniera from The Pickle guy😎
And I couldn’t resist stopping by the Cocoa Bean Fine Desserts and Bakery booth for a few treats.
*A few Gluten Free options also available.
Their soups and salads are under $10 and this is definitely a great place for a Saturday lunch date or a great meal with the family. Counter service till 4 then relaxed full service at night.
I love the fact that everything is made fresh, nothing was frozen (except the ice cream) and the menu changes with the seasons.
* Gluten Free options available.
Great food🍽 Great Staff and Great location!
We had a little plate of treats. Mango passionfruit, Opera, Chocolate Hazelnut, chocolate creme brulee.
Family owned Cafe & Bakery Located just a few minutes from Downtown St.Charles,Il.

Even though Coopers Hawk is quickly opening many new locations across the state and not a “mom and pop” restaurant like I normally dine at, I really enjoy the friendly atmosphere, amazing food and great wine.
Yesterday we visited the new location in St. Charles, Illinois and got to personally meet the chef, manager and many of the staff. With so many food allergies we have to be careful where we eat but Chef Gregory was so helpful. I love the fact that they also have a gluten free menu so the only other two things we had to ask is that they eliminate any corn or soy sauces from our meals.
I enjoyed the Dana’s Parmesan Crusted Chicken and mom had Shrimp & Scallop Risotto. She could eat the Scallops alone because they were perfectly cooked!
I would highly recommend trying Coopers Hawk. Great for a date night, family friendly or solo.
I love coming out to Wheaton Marianos Market to visit Chef Tong. Today he made me a Special Yellowtail and Veggie Maki. (It had cucumber, jalapeno, and avocado with Yellowtail and Lime on top.)
I love Japanese food but have to careful because of my allergies to soy, Thats why I enjoy eating here so often.
$8.50 Special Order

What a great turnout for the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in Schaumburg today! I would have to say 90% of the people took advantage of the great deal on Groupon for $15 for 2 people for the entire weekend. I know I did! #gfafexpo
