Has any one ever tried Duke of Perth at 2913 N. Clark St., www.dukeofperth.com for a good old fashioned beer battered all you can eat fish fry every Wednesday and Friday ? This Lincoln Park Scottish pub has always been my favorite for a beer battered fish fry, not to mention the 75 kinds of Scotch available. Any thoughts ?
After a very nice conversation with Sharon Katz of Burt's Place, Sharon related that Burt's Place will be featured on the Channel 11 show "Check Please" sometime in December, possibly January ( more likely December ). I usually eat in at Burt's, but this time I carried out because of a family party at my place. We also carried out the exact same order from Pizano's. It was a truly great night of deep dish/pan pizza with friends and family.
Though it's not an authentic Italian dish, Chicken Vesuvio tastes like it could be. In actuality, it's a specialty of the Italian-American restaurants in my home town of Chicago, invented sometime in the 1930s and still going strong as a favorite around town. It's a rich, stewed dish with key elements of creamy potatoes, white wine, and plenty of garlic—as well as the final sprinkle of peas to give it color and freshness.
