winnetkacurrent.com dining out the winnetka current | January 25, 2018 | 21 Quick Bites Bacon mania spreads on North Shore Eric DeGrechie Managing Editor “ABSOLUTELY —Kenn Wells, former lead dancer of the English National Ballet IN THE WORLD.” In the late 1990s, enthusiasm for bacon seemed to hit a fever pitch here in the United States. Now, years later, it doesn’t appear that what some have coined “bacon mania” is slowing down anytime soon. Bacon is so popular that it even has its own day on Dec. 30. While some argue for or against the health merits of the salt-cured pork, few outright dislike the taste. Even vegetarians get in on the fun by adding meatless bacon knockoffs to the diet. Last week, 22nd Century Media editors ventured out to different North Shore establishments to get their bacon fill and taste some unique creation, including these two. Grilled cheese and bacon — Fred’s Garage, Winnetka Grilled cheese — it’s practically the quintessential nostalgic American sandwich that fits appetites best when craving something deliciously gooey and perfectly crispy. And, when achieving that ideal butter-to-bread ratio outside all while balancing the perfect amount of cheese inside, you’ve got a comfort food staple. When Fred’s Garage opened this fall, the goal was to bring American favorites to an establishment that could quickly become a neighborhood staple. And, what comfort food menu would be complete without grilled cheese? But, at Fred’s, not only can you have a yummy plate of their grilled cheese, but you can also throw another American favorite — bacon — into the mix. The grilled cheese with bacon ($14.50) at Fred’s Garage is a bacon-and-cheese-lover’s delight. The sandwich is one of the restaurant’s newest add-ons. Jacqueline Glosniak/22nd Century Media The grilled cheese with bacon ($14.50) consists of sourdough bread cooked on the griddle with soft, creamy havarti cheese and smoked cheddar cheese, and long, crispy strips of bacon pressed in the middle. Then, the outside of the bread is generously crusted with Swiss cheese and fried to a crisp. General Manager Cary Michael said the grilled cheese with bacon was a recent menu add-on and so far, has been a big hit. “We’re actually listening to a lot of what the neighborhood and the regular customers are giving us feedback-wise,” he said. “We’ve made a ton of changes to the menu since we opened, so essentially, it’s a whole new menu. More comfort foods, homey, elevated classics, stuff of that nature.” Fred’s Garage, 574 Green Bay Road, is open 4:30-11 p.m. Monday- Thursday, 4:30 p.m.-midnight Friday-Saturday and 4:30-9 p.m. Sunday.

I introduce you to the ultimate twoin-one: bacon pancakes at Walker Bros. The Wilmette restaurant’s manager, Tom Zehnder, said the restaurant has served up the speciality pancakes for as long as he could remember. “We make maybe 35 orders or more a day,” Zehnder said. “It comes in a close second as the most popular dish to our apple pancakes.” When ordered, customers can expect six fresh pancakes to come straight from the kitchen’s griddle. The fresh bacon is sliced and added to the pancake batter — a secret recipe — just for this dish. “We’re not going the cheap route here. We actually use the same bacon that would be served as a side, not just dry bacon bits,” Zehnder added. For more information, visit walkerbros.net.
