THIRD on the D'amato's Pizza. Stupid-good. I have no idea what they're doing to it, but somehow inside of each slice, all lines between cheese, sauce, and dough are broken; all are one, and you are one with it as well. It's like COSMOS inside of your mouth.
Macku on Clybourn is stupid good, refined, and creative to boot.
HANDS SO FAR DOWN THEY'RE IN THE GROUND: Sweet potato lobster soup at Macku Sushi.
Yeah Josh - the intro reads confusing - like you're telling people not to make the mistake of going there period...
Anyway, you are dead right - Johnnie's is spectacular beef. It's the one thing I miss from an awful 1hr-plus commute i used to take out to Addison, IL. Man, I miss that beef & italian ice...
Hey Josh - your dark rye looks like spinach bread and the beef a bit grey and dead... I'm guessing that's not really the case and your pic needs to get it's white balance/hues tweaked. Not doing good things for my appetite... looks blegch.
I recommend Corcoran's (old town) Fish and Chips. I'm not sure that it has hit on all cylinders every time I've gotten it, but when it's on, it's really on.
THANK YOU, NICK.
Yeah, for cereal, guys - I know that there are certain agreed upon standards, rules, and regulations that we all must live by - social contract and everything - but must we be sooo exclusive about the definition of a diner?!
I thought that Serious Eats is a friendly place where all are welcome - where snobbery is mostly eschewed in the face of plain 'ol good-food-discourse; a place for the enjoyment of all - workingman, or, white collar - just like a DINER! Can't we be a little more inclusive?
Clearly, I've been losing my bet, for the most part. Somebody throw me a frickin' bone here, people...
I read the title of this article - and I was totally about to instantly start talking trash like - "foolproof pan pizza is impossible since pan pizza is for fools" - but then I started reading your childhood recollection of the perfect pan pizza - and of course, I could only think "I'm an ass" - Kenji - the heart you put into serious eats makes all the difference!!
Kalamata Chicken at The Athenian Room! Juicy and savory chicken on top a load of greek fries soaked in that soul satisfying vinegary greek sauwce. Mmmmm....
Beast of Burden
