From Us


spring has sprung at FARE!

Spring has sprung at FARE. If you haven’t been in to try our new items, what are you waiting for? Citrus Snap Peas with radish, mint, feta and oranges, Charred Broccoli and Asparagus with fresno peppers and our Spring Grain Salad with barley, wheat berries, peas, roasted scallions and chives have all been big hits. Grass fed, gluten free lamb meatballs seasoned with coriander, cumin, cardamom, fennel and cloves have also made their debut and we are loving them with, well, just about everything.

Veggies aren't the only thing getting an update. Warmer temperatures (c’mon Chicago) have us craving something cool and refreshing and we’ve rounded out our smoothie offerings with a ‘mint chip’ smoothie, called Edie. Vitamin C packed spinach, potassium rich banana, hemp seeds full of protein, healthy omega-3 and 6, mint, cacao nibs for crunch and added iron and fiber are all making Edie a new favorite.

Looking to pack your favorite smoothie with even more goodness? You can now add plant protein, Vital Proteins collagen, hemp seeds, avocado and CBD (!). Breakfast, pre/post workout, afternoon pick-me-up, anytime is the right time for a smoothie.

Come by and get yours.

the more you know : Equilibria CBD

CBD curious? We were! When we discovered Equilibria, a women founded, Chicago based brand bottling the stuff from their farm in Colorado, we had to know more. "Quality and consistency are everything! . . .The farm hand harvests all its hemp flowers to create our full-spectrum hemp flower oil — no seeds, leaves, or stalks, and it's DEFINITELY not isolate." Equlibria's industrial hemp is bred to contain less than 0.3% THC. It won’t get you high or make you feel stoned, and it’s federally 100% legal.

Touted for it's anti-inflammatory, pain-reducing, and mind-lifting effects. We are seeing it in everything from chocolate to sparkling water, and now available in your favorite FARE smoothie.

Favorite FARE menu item?

Probably the avocado toast. It's the one thing I don't make a lot of so anytime I do, I end up craving it largely

When you're not at FARE?

Driving around the city with my boo. We're always looking for diamond in the rough type restaurants
