Part of The Little Black Pearl Family

Carver 47 is a café and wellness market housed inside Little Black Pearl Art & Design Academy, North Kenwood’s hub for innovation and learning. Our service experience and environment embody the spirit of legendary botanist and humanitarian Dr. George Washington Carver. Our featured products include rotating weekly menus, complete with sauces, spices, juices and some á la carte specialties. We also serve as a boutique market of locally sourced produce and artisan products, such as flowers and artwork, that contribute to our guests’ holistic wellness. Our central mission is to provide balanced, nourishing meals and high-quality products that inspire and empower community members to deepen their commitment to wellness.

Both Carver 47 and Little Black Pearl were founded by business leader and visionary Monica Haslip. Monica’s intention was to create a common space whose offerings of nourishing and accessible food could bring the bright and diverse people of Chicago together. A gifted designer, Monica has created a service and meeting space like no other. Infused with art, green life, and a wonder-provoking mix of materials and colors, Carver 47 exudes an ambiance of urban passion and Southern influence.
“I believe that carefully designed spaces play an imperative role in fostering an atmosphere of creative exchange and intentional progress.” -- Monica
C47 is led by culinary artist and LBP board member Elizabeth Wright. Lizz is widely known as a jazz and folk singer-songwriter but she is also a graduate of Dr. AnneMarie Colbin’s Natural Gourmet Institute of New York. At NGI Lizz learned to view food as both a medicine and a creative language. After graduation she was prepared to be a private chef. She followed the chef’s training course with an internship at Three Stone Hearth, a unique community-supported kitchen and market in Berkeley, California.
C47’s menu is informed by Lizz and Monica’s rural Southern upbringings as well as their frequent international travel.

“We enjoy observing how food can help us develop a sacred relationship with our sense of time. Because of our childhood experiences of tending large gardens with our fathers and our travels leading us to tables around the world, we’re moved to create food experiences that encourage taking time, sharing comfort and making memories at the table.” ---Lizz
