The 11 Best Dishes at Chicago Gourmet
Yesterday, we recounted the epic tale of attempting to eat every single dish at Chicago Gourmet (perhaps infamous is the better word for it). Requiring an honest eight or nine hours to complete, it wasn't easy. But for the most part, spirits were high. See, we never knew what the next bite would be, and while some of them were disappointing, most were genuinely interesting. A few, though, were truly remarkable.
These are the eleven bites that stuck out amongst the other 120-odd things we tried over the weekend. From sandwiches to salads to carbonated fruits (yes, carbonated fruits), here are the bites we'd happily stand in line again for.
