There are tourist sites that Chicagoans love to hate (looking at you, Navy Pier), and then there are those we simply love. Millennium Park is definitely in the latter camp.
'toni patisserie' on Serious Eats
While my focus was on Belgian-style waffles, I wanted to make sure that I tried a wide range of toppings and included both sweet and savory styles. I tried everything from basic butter and maple syrup-topped waffles to a fish and quail egg-topped version.
As much as I've loved the sandwich offerings at Toni Patisserie and Café in the Loop, I've been putting off trying one in particular: Le Banh Mi ($9.95).
There are few foods that rival the versatility of the biscuit. You can douse them in thick sausage gravy or break them open (preferably while still warm) and slather them with butter. You can turn them into a sandwich, gild them with jam, or eat them as a side dish with fried chicken. Here are some of our favorites in Chicago.
