Appetizer shops

Where can I purchase appetizers for a party that are reasonably priced & tasty? I can cover a lot of ground - the location can be anywhere from NW Chgo to Deerfield. I've purchase all that Trader Joe's has to offer but would like to try something different. I've heard of Unforgettable Edibles or Foodstuffs but have not tried either. Any suggestions?

Unforgettable Edible
7280 W Devon Ave, Chicago, IL 60631

  1. There are lots of places. The most cost-effective can be found in the freezers at Trader Joe's, Costco, and Sam's Club. Beyond that, Foodstuffs (locations in Glencoe, Glenview, and Evanston) has some, fresh as well as frozen. And so does Sunset Foods in Northbrook, Lake Forest, Highland Park, and Libertyville. I think Zier's, the great butcher shop in Wilmette, has some frozen ones. Or you could just get some fresh shrimp at Burhops in Wilmette or Glenview.

      Schaefer's Wine on Gross Point Road has a nice little selection of frozen & refrigerated goodies. Also, nice cheeses etc.

      Also, "All On the Road" Catering in Park Ridge does a nice job too.
