Whole Farm Cooking

Welcome to the Next Step in Farm-to-Table Dining

We work with trusted local farm partners to find the best produce and livestock for our constantly rotating menus. Our chefs are trained to follow plant development from a crop’s earliest stages of growth to its peak level of maturity. And the animals we prepare, which are all raised ethically and humanely, are butchered in-house to make sure every part is used properly.

Our standards on sustainability and freshness are uncompromising. Natural food is a gift, and it’s one we refuse to waste.

Culinary Jazz

Taste the Midwest’s Heart and Soul in Every Bite

Our culinary approach is firmly planted in ancient times. By combining hands-on techniques passed down through the generations with modern flare, we’re able to make sure every dish we create reaches its full potential.

This back-to-basics philosophy bridges the gap between past and present, letting you experience the unique flavors of the Heartland like never before. Add our extensive wine pairing service into the mix, and you’re ready to live the lost magic of old-world dining.

To our chefs, cooking is an artistic exercise in rustic simplicity—and your plate is our canvas. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your meal the way Mother Nature intended.

Our Farm Partners

Dinner Grown in Your Own Backyard

Edge partners with over 60 local farms from the Central Illinois region to make sure your food is as fresh as can be. Each farm we do business with is hand-selected based on criteria like ingredient quality and how they raise livestock.

These farms never rush Earth’s natural timetable. Though this means some of our meals can take months of growth, procurement, and preparation before even reaching the kitchen, we can’t imagine doing things any other way.

Every entrée Edge creates is just the final page of a much longer book. But thanks to the amazing farms we work with, we’re able to make sure the whole story is worth telling.
