Humphry Slocombe is known for some rather adventurous ice cream flavors, but they do a bang-up job with the classics, too. Torn between Peanut Butter Curry and Malted Milk Chocolate? Spend a few minutes with our guide to every single ice cream on the menu before choosing your scoop(s).
SoCal favorite Sidecar Doughnuts & Coffee serves doughnuts in flavors ranging from Huckleberry to Bacon Maple to Green Eggs & Ham. Obviously someone had to try the whole menu, and that someone was us.
Hurricane Sandy may have delayed the opening of Court Street Grocers' Red Hook hero shop, but the wait paid off. The counter service shop, an offshoot of the Carroll Gardens original, offers spins on American classics like roast beef, Italian combos, breakfast sandwiches, and other regional specialties—all on crisp, airy hero bread from Caputo's.
Unlike just about every other barbecue restaurant I've been to, everything on Smoque BBQ's menu, from the ribs and brisket to the beans and corn bread, is worth ordering. And that's exactly what a group of us did.

If you've ever enjoyed the perfect sweet-sour balance of a Lemonhead or the addictive crunch of a Red Hot, you'll be happy to know you've been eating locally this whole time (good job, you trendy locavores). We recently tried all of the classic candy available at the Ferrara Pan Outlet to help you decide what to pass out for Halloween.
What Big &Little's lacks in technical taco making prowess, it makes up in genuine creativity. No dish or flavor combination is too out there or too bizarre to be transformed into a taco, be it a bánh mì, sweet and sour chicken, or a lamb gyro. And they have lots and lots of options to choose from.
What is it like for two people to try 120 different dishes in two days? Here is the account of Roger and I attempting to eat everything at Chicago Gourmet.
