In Chicago, it’s all about the food. Thankfully, I’m doing a lot of walking. Now that the weather’s heating up, however, I’ll be spending more time indoors, which means….more food, dude. Here’s a sampling of what I’ve consumed:
At Ann Sather (Just Good Food): The home-baked breads are a treat. The cinnamon roll was just about the most delicious thing I’ve ever eaten
Ann Sather’s fried catfish sandwich was a dream. There was also a salad with blue cheese dressing, and cole slaw. I was in Ann Sather heaven.
Mexican combo plate – Thursday lunch
Half a roasted chicken with pita and cole slaw at Chicken Hut, Belmont & Broadway – Thursday dinner. Thanks to http://www.chicagogluttons.com/ for the recommendation!
My first slice of real cheesecake in over 5 years – Bourgeois Pig cafe, breakfast on Friday
The Majestic Burrito at Chicago Diner, with sour cream and guacamole – Friday lunch
Turkey Panini and chocolate-cheesecake brownie at Austrian Bakery – Friday dinner
In case you’re thinking that all I do is eat: the Green Mill lounge in Uptown, dating from the 1920s.
Still to come: I have exactly two days left in which to consume the following: a grilled reuben sandwich on rye, a deep dish pizza, Indian food, Thai food, and one final Greek gyros sandwich. Wish me luck.
