Matt and I went to Crosby’s Kitchen on Southport (Lakeview) the other day for dinner. I ordered my typical Wrightwood Salad (which is now my go-to salad) while Matt ordered the turkey burger. I was confused because, like, who orders a turkey burger when you’re out to dinner? Turkey burgers are dry and bland! Right?!
