Celebrate 25 Days of Lettuce with 25 Insta-ready Dishes

Celebrate 25 Days of Lettuce with 25 Insta-ready Dishes

Dec 10, 2017

If you didn’t post it on Instagram, did you ever really eat it?

We’re counting down the holidays this year with the 25 Days of Lettuce: the top tastes and trends we saw on Instagram in 2017.

A tray of oysters on ice with sauce in the middle from Oyster Bah

Day 1: Jingle shells, jingle shells – the oysters from @oysterbah are always a food ‘grammer’s go-to.

2 M Burger's double-cheeseburgers being held on top of each other and held up outside the M Burger store

Day 2: The holidays may be a time for giving, but there’s no “we” in an @MBurgerChicago Double.

Stella Barra's Sausage pizza on a place

Day 3: The most-Instagrammed food in the country? Pizza, of course. Have a slice of the Organic Sausage & Shaved Fennel Pizza from @stellabarra.

Joe's Seafood's Stone Crab on a bed of ornaments

Day 4: On the fourth day of Lettuce our true love gave to us: the stone crab from @joesseafood.

Spicy Hummus from Ema

Day 5: It’s cold outside but warm in here – especially with @emachicago’s Spicy Hummus.

A basket of bao spread out on a table

Day 6: All a-bao-t that @wowbao: for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Petterino's Peppermint Ice Cream

 Day 7: A holiday favorite that we tend to eat year-round: @Petterinos_ Peppermint Ice Cream.

A spread from Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba!

Day 8: Take it cheesy with a classic: @CafeBaBaReeba’s goat cheese baked in tomato sauce.

Gluten-free coffee cake from Beatrix cut in squares on a brown paper bag

Day 9: Why did @emmyrossum tweet that she had the best day ever this year? Because she had @beatrixchicago’s coffee cake (psst it’s actually gluten-free!)

Tokio Pub's Ramen Burger

Day 10: Talk about a trending topic. The burger with two ramen noodle buns from @tokiopub is a must-try.

Summer House's cookies on a cookie sheet coming out of the oven

Day 11: Smart cookies leave @summerhousesm treats for Santa. These baked goodies are one of our most-shared items of all time.

Mon Ami Gabi's French Onion Soup

Day 12: Cozy up with French Onion Soup Au Gratin at @monamigabistro. Pro tip: Snap that cheese pull for an Insta-worthy photograph.

Don & Charlie's Chocolate Cake piled high

Day 13: Loving chocolate cake is easy, especially when it’s from @donandcharlies1.

The Bali Bali smoking while a bartender gets the drink together

Day 14: Where there’s smoke, there’s cocktails @threedotsandadash. Make sure you snap ’em!

RPM Steak's 14K Gold Chocolate Cake

Day 15: The cake that’s always merry: @RPMSteak’s 14K chocolate cake.

Booth One's Seafood platter

Day 16: All eyes are on the seafood tower from our newest restaurant: @boothonechicago.

L. Woods platter of ribs being held by a server

Day 17: Snowy days = Comfort foods. Go on, grab a rack of ribs (or two!) from @lwoodsrestaurant.

ASAP Poke bowl with chop sticks resting on the bowl

Day 18: Chicago got a little taste of Hawaii in July when we opened @asappoke – one of our most Instagrammed spots.

Beef noodles with noodle being pulled up from chopstick at Big Bowl

Day 19: Take it from our own #CarbieBarbie (photographer @christinaslaton):  “Carbs are always Instagrammable. Especially from @bigbowlbuzz.”

A ramen bowl with someone pulling up the noodles with chopsticks

Day 20: Send noods. Noodles, of course. @ramensanchi.

A bento box of sushi from Naoki

Day 21: The second-most Instagrammed food this year? Sushi. And you can’t go wrong with the colorful nigiri at @naokisushichi.

Different crepes with different toppings on a marble table from Foodlife

Day 22:  Start your holiday sugar-fix early with a crepe drizzled with nutella and chocolate from @foodlife_chicago.

The Mity Nice Fritzy burger on a plate with a side of fries

Day 23: With peppercorn crust, crispy onions, and bleu cheese – the Fritzy burger at @MityNice is stacked up just right for the perfect photo op. 

Wildfire's chopped salald in an overhead shot

Day 24: A huge hit every year (without the guilt): the Chopped Salad from @wildfirerest.

RPM Italian's ravioli

Day 25: All we want for Christmas? The @RPMItalian Maine Lobster Ravioli.

As we close out this year, we look forward to another year of memorable meals, delicious drinks, and perfect Instagram shots. Thank you for dining and ‘gramming with us this year.

Happy Holidays from our Lettuce family to yours!
