  1. And their lamb is unfreakingbelievably good. They have stalls at both City Market and Brookside; for the folks going to City Market during the Heartland gathering I encourage you to seek them out.
  2. I am still full, and have made two friends burst into tears of jealousy with my recitation of the menu. OMG so good. (Not to rub it in or anything, Colby)
  3. Well that just turned a crappy morning around!
  4. Rub in garlic and rosemary, little bit of oil, let sit for an hour. Or rub in Penzey's chicago steak seasoning. Throw in oven at 250 until about 105 degrees, amp up heat to 450 to brown. Not bad! Not too chewy, good flavor, not overcooked. Adapted from the slow heat method in The Complete Meat Cookbook, your time will vary based on the size of the roast naturally. Would that I could get one cheap, the kid's in a growth spurt.
  5. Just a note for anyone planning on doing a cassoulet over the second part of the holidays- Whole Foods elected not to stock the D'artignan duck fat this year, but McGongigle's has it and lowered their prices $2 from last year, so they're no longer holy moley expensive.
  6. And why, I ask myself, haven't I gone yet? ← Because you fear my corner of Joco?
  7. Yes, they are, and they've only gotten better. Be sure to ask if they do have fatty tuna in. Kaiyo's gotten busier, but not so busy your friend will have a hard time getting a table, most likely.
  8. Duck fat - I think McGonigal's has it. (wench - weren't you ISO back in the colder days for duck fat for a flageolet?). Let me know if you/where you find veal bones. ← Yes. McGonigle's has it- Whole Foods does as well and was cheaper than McG! McG can get veal bones if you make arrangements ahead of time.
  9. Their lemongrass is outstanding, too. And cheap. Megacheap.
  10. Avenues. (Um, ue will not be surprised by my vote!)
  11. And may John be feeling better this morning, too! Daaaaaang that was a transcendent way to end a meal. My shredded wheat and soymilk is not looking so appealing this morning. Mamagotcha! where are you and your photos!
  12. All good thoughts and wishes for a fast and full recovery, ChefG. If you should need it, I can help with information on cancer patient resources in Chicago, as well as medline research. Best to you and yours.
  13. Hilarious- I was about to start a topic asking for lunch recommendations w/in a 10 min cab ride from McCormick Place. (despite the username, I have not lived in Chicago for a few years. Sob.) I'd appreciate any recommendations on that score! Thanks.
  14. And yet the biology grad students ate there religiously!
