I had a meeting in Oakbrook and the building happened to be right next to Michael Jordan’s Restaurant on 22nd Street. I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening a few years back & hang in the vicinity of His Airness.
It was after lunchtime, but I hadn’t eaten – so I stopped into MJ’s following my meeting. Just wanted something light, so I opted for the turkey sandwich – with a side salad. Look at me, being all effing healthy.
On the lunch menu, it’s called the Roast Turkey & Avocado – and it’s a spectacular sandwich. Wouldn’t expect anything less from MJ. Turkey, bacon, avocado, tomato, cucumber, sprouts & herb mayo on buttery multi-grain bread. Salad did what salads did, filled in the gaps in my eating, simple fresh side salad.
I ordered a Coke and dude refilled me before I had to ask. Also brought out the check in a super timely fashion. Sometimes I hesitate going to a sit-down place for lunch because I know I might get stuck trying to flag down a server to get my bill and GTFO. Not an issue at Jordan’s. My guy knew I wanted a quick exit and paved the way.
