Best Places in Chicago for Natural Food
Bavette’s is one of my favorite places to eat in the city. I love the atmosphere, which features a lot of dark wood and gives the place an old whiskey bar feel. The food is awesome, and it’s one of the best places in Chicago for natural food, such as naturally raised beef, homemade pastas and veggies grown in their rooftop garden.
I’m a three-time Chicago Marathoner and an avid triathlete, who qualified for the USA Triathlon National Championship every year from 2012 until 2018. (This year, I took time off to be with my wife and our new baby girl.) I was a Top 25 finisher in the 2015 Chicago Triathlon, and I qualified for the TOUGHMAN Championship race in 2016 and 2017, and prior to that, I completed two full IRONMAN competitions. I’m the Head Masters Swim Coach at the East Bank Club in Chicago and the principle of Rummel Insurance, a third-generation company specializing in commercial and personal lines of insurance.
