It's never a bad day to talk about a delicious new menu in downtown Rockford.

Rockford is packed with good food and being a part of Ate One Five with Sweet Lenny has expanded my food horizons immensely!

One of the stops we made last year, was to Octane in downtown Rockford.

Little known fact, Octane makes my favorite croutons in the city, but aside from the Ceasar Salad and the mac and cheese, I hadn't really had more of the menu.

Then we made a visit and I was hooked on trusting the head chef, Patrick Alberto, to make anything into delicious.

Earlier this week Octane dropped a brand new menu (without ditching my personal faves) and I'm pretty sure I need to stop in like ASAP.
