  1. One of the things I miss the most about the city is Southport Grocery. The cupcakes are worth the drive in from the suburbs every once in a while.

  2. This food is making me so hungry! Ill have to remember this post if I am ever back in Chicago! I am all about Indian and Mexican good! Yum!

  3. I'm heading to Endgrain this weekend (Roscoe Village) and I'll let you know how it is! They are said to have one of the best biscuits in the states, via Food & Wine magazine.

  4. Wow don't think yall will run out of options for a while. All of the food looks so, so good (especially as I'm drinking my V8)!

  5. OK this is terrible, but I have only been to ONE of these restaurants! I need to get on it!

  6. And now I have my list for when I go to Chicago! (One day)!!! Sigh...

  7. Oh my goodness, your food photos are making me crave a pizza:) I love Greek food and we have a little place just a few blocks away that serves the most amazing Greek dishes. Muah, lovely.

  8. I could definitely get into Sunday night dinners with you guys!

  9. It's not inexpensive, but well priced for what you get: Le Petit Paris. It's in a weird location — a condo building near the John Hancock, but it's damn good.

    P.S. I prefer Lou's too!
