Evanston Food News: Ten Mile House Opens on Central Ave.

The bustling food scene in Evanston gets a new entry starting today at 4:30 p.m. with the arrival of Ten Mile House (formerly named The Wood Shed) in the Central Station building. Ten Mile House, named in homage to "Evanston's first gathering point" founded in 1836, will seat 110 throughout its dining room, 25 at the bar and more in the outdoor patio (once warm weather returns to us).
From a team that includes Unite Urban Grill owner Joe Krouse and a kitchen headed up by Lettuce Entertain You vet Greg Carter, Ten Mile House is implementing a menu filled with comfort-food favorites alongside healthier items.
In 1836, Major Edward H. Mulford established the original Ten Mile House.  Combining a tavern, post office, inn and courthouse, Ten Mile House served as the social and economic center of the community now known as the City of Evanston.
178 years later, Ten Mile House restaurant reestablishes the area’s first public gathering point and continues the tradition of hospitality.  Neighbors and area visitors alike are welcome to enjoy our thoughtful comfort food in a vibrant, welcoming setting just steps from Northwestern University. 
Ten Mile House is an ideal venue for a variety of experiences, including family-friendly dining, game day gatherings, after-work get-togethers, a casual night out and more.
