Epic BurgerGold Coast | Website
The fourth outpost of this Chicago chain serves the same all-natural, hand-crafted turkey and beef burgers as the other West Loop, South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Burgers come topped with Epic sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles and grilled or raw onions; you can also add an organic, cage-free fried egg or nitrate-free bacon. (Take one to go in one of the restaurant's eco-friendly containers, made from plants.) The eatery's focus on fresh fare includes preservative-free buns, baked daily, and hand-cut French fries seasoned with pure sea salt. Epic's shakes and smoothies even include a focus on freshness: They're made with all-natural ice cream, fat-free frozen yogurt and organic milk.
