Try Chicago deep dish.I can almost GUARANTY you that you won't like it.
I believe it. It seems like a huge pie of greasy, cheese and butter. Like Pizza Hut deep dish. I don't have the stomach capacity for that at all. But my husband wants to try it and I will taste it and see if I can get a salad.
Daniel- I'm not really that picky. I don't like foie gras (although I believe it's banned in Chicago?) and I'm not really open to offal. Maybe I'll reconsider. That's pretty funny about your dad

We did love Lawry's as it is an experience and they have a "sale" wine list which rocked. The prime rib was pretty good. The horseradish sauce was either bland or seriously intense, so I mixed them. The salad was a show, and a bit over dressed with too much iceberg but tasty. Loved the Yorkie, and the side of creamed corn. The seating there is NOT cramped and super generously space which was really nice. The mashed potatoes were improved with Lawry's seasoned salt.
Went to Billy Goat Tavern after a crazy half game played which delayed our game, something I've never seen in all of my years as a Mets season ticket holder. We went for the double burger at the Billy Goat afterward... We were drunk and hungry but damn it was good! Then tonight we went to Voltare. The ricotta gnocchi was amazing. The crowd was insane. The veal limone was inedible. More to come!
