dish Restaurant in Valparaiso, Indiana
dish restaurant has earned a place in my list of top restaurants by providing a relaxing, pleasant experience with great food and great service every time I go.

Midwest Living wrote, “Working in an open kitchen, chefs create updated American classics…What sets dish apart is the excellent service and smart menu that changes with the seasons.”
The lunch options at dish range from a chicken wrap, to a crab cake sandwich to macaroni and cheese with ham. But one of the best choices is their box lunch, which featured a sandwich, soup, salad and dessert served to your table in a wooden box. The box lunch changes often.
Valparaiso, Indiana Restaurant
Each dinner meal at this Northern Indiana restaurant starts with delicious bread and butter. Then comes the to-die-for appetizers — I always go for a spinach and beet salad and/or crab cakes. My favorite meal is the turmeric and sweet chili shrimp with coconut basmati rice and sweet peas.
The first time I got it I had them serve it with tender-crisp asparagus instead of peas — and it was awesome. I forgot to make the substitution the last time I ordered it — and it was awesome.
During our most recent visit, my dining partner chose (and loved) the 12-ounce grilled pork chop with goat cheese potato custard, asparagus and blueberry chutney.
