We found Foodease Resturant Market. One word YUM. They had a salad bar, $8.19 per pound. Which, yes, reading that it seems expensive. But I do not power load on the dressing. So my salad was $5.00 and it was HUGE. They also have select restaurants around Chicago come in and make food, pre-made sandwiches, bottles of wine, SUSHI!!!!, fruit, and even gluten free items! They also sell quite a few local ingredients as well… BONUS!!!!  recommend it!
