I'm a suburbanite that will be commuting to the Ukrainian village (right off of 1700 W Chicago Ave) just about every other week.
What are some good spots for say...Coffee? Bagels? Brunch? And/or dinner?
I realize that this question is completely spread out but I am welcome to any new ideas and/or places.
That and places that aren't too far via parking and/or walking....
I'm planning on cooking some sort of "game"-ish version meal for my boyfriend...However he's never had foies gras before, and has tried the duck bacon. He has, however, hunted and eaten deer (I'm uncertain if he's eaten duck before but I know he's hunted that as well).
What I have available is
Ground Deer (1 lb)
a small roll of Duck Foie w/ truffle (D'artagnan)
Duck Bacon (D'artagnan)
Deer filet chopped into cubes
I was thinking of making a meatloaf version using the deer meat, foie, duck bacon...And another type of ground meat which I'm uncertain of (veal?/ground beef?/pork?).
I also have caul fat, and bacon fat as well.
I just figured I'd come on the site and see if anyone would have any input or ideas before I decide to possibly make this? (I'm aiming for this coming Saturday).
I'll be in Montreal for a week and I was wondering if there were any recommendable good affordable places to eat?
I visit Arlington Heights on a weekly (weekend) basis, and I'm having a hard time finding a specialized sea food store near the area.
I know of Succulent Seafood in Naperville, Dirk's in Chicago, Burhops in Glenview and Hinsdale.....Is there any place that's closer?
I love oysters however I'm hesitant in introducing my boyfriend to oysters as I'd like him to have a 'good' experience with them....
What would you recommend, and how would you recommend it?....
As in what oyster and would you have it cooked (if so in what way) or just shucked as is?
I know that there is no guarantee...However the more input the better in the sense of 'commonality'...
