FRESH AMERICAN MENU AT BOOM CHICAGO

The traditional American cuisine has embraced a host of ethnic classics long time ago. For this Boom Chicago menu, De Laurier combines the once-loved classics with international twists.

Caesar salad

This ever presented Classic doesn’t originate from the continent at all. It’s from Tijuana Mexico where Caesar Cardini, an Italian restaurateur,
created it on the Fourth of July weekend in 1924. This version follows the original recipe but much lighter, more refreshing and more lemony.

Corn chowder

Chowder has its roots in the Latin word calderia, which originally meant ‘a place for warming things’, and later came to mean ‘cooking pot.’ A simple dish of chowder, in the past considered to be “poor man’s food,” has a century old history. Nowadays, every state, every town, every restaurant claims their original chowder recipe. De Laurier claims the Boom Chicago Corn chowder recipe.

Classic Vesuvio Chicago Chicken

Chicken Vesuvio, a specialty of the state of Chicago forever. It got its name after it was popularized in the 1930’s by Vesuvio Restaurant. Chicken, lemon, peas and potatoes are the main ingredients with this the chefs of De Laurier have composed a Vesuvio with a Middle eastern twist.

Brownies & Caramel & Popcorn

There’s no doubt that brownies are one of America’s favorite dessert. Chocolate & butter & sugar …. It can’t get any better than that! Popcorn has been known for thousands of years, all over the world from Mexico to Korea. In the early years of the product, popcorn was popped by hand. Its popularity has always been there even during the great depression as it was fairly inexpensive. During WW II sugar rations raised the production and popularity of popcorn as well. Served at Boom Chicago with a sweetened milk caramel and sugar popcorn: it’s our favorite.

Lemon cheesecake

Cheesecake is a beloved dessert around the world. While many assume that it has its origins in New York, it actually dates from 4,000 years ago in ancient Greece! The first “cheese cake” may have been created on the Greek island of Samos as a wedding cake as Greek brides and grooms were also known to use cheesecake as a wedding cake. The Classic New York style cheesecake was served with a spongy cake & fruits. In Chicago sour cream is added to the recipe and the Philadelphia cheesecake is known for being lighter and creamier. The Boom Chicago version has a festive sour & sweet taste.
