Where to Eat Near Millennium Park, Chicago

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 4 comments

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. More

Where to Eat in the Chicago Pedway

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 4 comments

When it gets really cold, like it is right now, workers in Chicago take advantage of one of the city's little known assets: the Pedway. This mostly underground path—with a few covered pedestrian bridges thrown in—allows workers to shuffle to and from work without getting battered by the elements. As I found out, you can also eat down there. More

8 British Dishes We Love in Chicago

Chicago The Serious Eats Chicago Team 5 comments

If this were even four years ago, trying to track down a proper British-inspired meal in Chicago would have led to a few eye rolls and a lot of greasy fried fish. But lately a collection of Anglophiles passionate about craft and quality have uncovered a cuisine focused on quality, seasonality, and the handmade. Check out some of our favorite dishes. More

We Try the Whole Menu at Pret a Manger

New York The Serious Eats Team 38 comments

Pret A Manger is the sort of chain-but-better, like Chipotle or Starbucks, beloved by urbanities who would never confess to loving McDonald's or KFC. That it started out in London might have something to do with it; so too might the perception of Pret as a benevolent enterprise, one that has spread over major metropolitan areas but isn't really fast food. Sure, they're convenient, but we wanted to know: what's really worth ordering at Pret a Manger? We tasted (just about) the entire menu to find out. More

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 3 comments

You don't necessarily think of Pret A Manger as being in the beverages business, but in addition to their grab-and-go-sandwiches, salads, and baked goods, there's a whole case of Pret-branded drinks, and on the whole, these sippables are refreshing and well-made. We grabbed all the interesting ones for a quick review. More

Now that a Pret location has opened a mere 3 blocks from SE HQ (thanks for accommodating me, Pret!), I've had what they're now calling "Pret's Famous Ham & Cheese" a handful of times and it's just about as good as I remember. More

Fast-Food Yogurt Parfaits

New York Carey Jones 16 comments

When fast-food restaurants jump on the health food bandwagon, the results aren’t usually great. (McDonald’s wilted salads and Dunkin’ Donuts cardboard flatbreads come to mind.) But many chains have had luck in the yogurt parfait department. Fruit, yogurt, and... More

It’s warm, healthy, filling, and pairs well with anything—in so many ways, oatmeal is an ideal breakfast food. But portable, it is not. While instant oatmeal packets can be a fair substitute, those on-the-go (or without a microwave in... More

Pret a Manger DIY

Lia Bulaong 3 comments

One of my favorite chain restaurants ever is the London-based Pret a Manger, a private company with 150 shops in the UK, New York and Hong Kong, all dedicated to using natural, preservative-free ingredients to make freshly-prepared food. If you haven't got one near you (or have a favorite meal you'd like to make at home), they've put many of their classic recipes online in pretty printable PDF files. If you think you might like a little bit of curry and chutney in a sandwich, try the Coronation Chicken, I've had it for lunch quite a few times and it's rather tasty. [via NotCot]... More
