Seussify your Sunday and Celebrate with Sneetches

By L. Stolpman in Food on Feb 27, 2008 3:30PM

There was an old man named Seuss,
Who loved to eat chocolate mousse.
He always took more,
(for he was a food whore)
And to hell with his growing caboose!

Marche.jpgGet your green eggs and ham this weekend at Marche’s Annual Dr. Seuss Celebration this Sunday, March 2. The Randolph Street restaurant is throwing Theodor Seuss Geisel a 104th birthday to remember with costumed characters and a special Dr. Seuss menu with food for both children and adults. We got a sneak peek at Sunday night’s menu and are confident the younger ones will enjoy the Golden Mayzie Bird with Crispy Branches (chicken tenders and Marche fries) and the adults can go wild for the Once-lers Roast Wild Beast Blue Who Goo Holly-Who-Mash, Grickle Grass Moose Juice (grilled prime ribeye, Roquefort crust, crème fresh whips, grilled asparagus, black peppercorn sauce).

The Marche celebration runs from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at 833 W. Randolph Street. Call (312) 226-8399 for more information and to make your reservations.

The Seuss-infused food fun continues on March 9th as the Food Network airs a Food Network Challenge in which four cake makers will compete to make a Seuss inspired cake. Chicago’s very own Cakegirls bakery is competing for the $10,000 prize. Tune in at 8 CST to see if Cakegirls can take home the prize for a third time!
