Onion Garden Brings Healthy Gourmet Food to the Table




The Onion Garden, located in downtown Highland Park, offers health-minded diners a fresh alternative to options typically available from catering services. Owner and chef Tim Carden says, “We bring a fully customizable private event service to your venue using fresh, locally sourced and organic ingredients at a honest price.”

         Carden can accommodate most special diets, including gluten-free, vegan, no-lactose and allergen-free. Offering a menu based on healthy, delicious food, he has curated and produced events for up to 1,000 people, ranging from a backyard barbecue to elegant celebrations, social gatherings, holiday dinners, engagement parties and weddings. 

         With a professional chef’s background in catering and nutrition, Carden takes pride in his signature dishes, which include spiced Muscovy duck with blackberry brandy sauce; Murgh Korma, a coconut cashew curry; and varied fish, meat, game, vegetable and whole grain plates.

         Onion Garden also offers what Carden calls “fast food for foodies” at his Highland Park location, which includes fresh, from scratch healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner options for dine-in, takeout and delivery via many app-driven meal delivery services. The cooked-to-order menu changes seasonally, and includes fresh soups, build-your-own plates and a Sunday brunch menu, plus a weekly meal service.

Location: 1788 Second St., Ste. 100 (lower level), Highland Park. For more information, call 847-926-3100 or visit OnionGarden.com.
