Daylight saving time has us up an hour earlier, but go big or go home, right? The
unseasonably warm March weather in Chicago calls for a celebration! The Yelp Chicago
Elite Squad woke up early to gather at Butcher & The Burger for Yelp Rises & Shines.
No roosters were harmed in the process of the sunrise wake-up call.
There's no rule that city-folk can’t enjoy farm fresh food. And Butcher &
The Burger proved it by serving up a trio of breakfast croissant sammies for Yelpers to
graze upon: country pork sausage & egg (made from home-grown Ossabaw Island pigs
and organic farm fresh eggs); freshly-cured Benton’s bacon (from the same Ossabaw
group); tree-ripe avocado, tomato and goat cheese for Elites of the grass-fed variety
(AKA vegetarians). Chef Al Sternweiler also treated Elites to a special surprise –
Weisswurst, or German Veal Brats, that he made himself the night before. Talk about
hospitality! As if that wasn’t enough, a steady supply of hot and fresh beignets satisfied
the herd’s sweet tooth.
You can lead Elites to water, but you won’t need to make them drink. And in this case,
Butcher & The Burger led Elites to freshly-squeezed orange juice, Café du Monde Coffee
and Café Bustelo Cubanos. For Elites who needed an early morning kick in the overalls,
Yelp Chicagoland Community Manager Candice G was on hand pouring beermosas. Ee-
And because our Elites are hungry for knowledge about food as well as the food itself,
Chef Sternweiler addressed the crowd with Butcher & The Burger’s philosophies on
serving the best quality meat, artisan cheeses, and fresh produce. Elites left the event
feeling physically and mentally sated, and ready to start the rest of their days. Or, slip
into a wonderful food coma for the rest of their Sunday. Yelp farmhand/intern Linda D
was in the house with camera in tow. Peep the photos here and read reviews of the event
