A bistro is a comfortable, neighborhood eatery that serves unfussy food that should be moderately priced – think steak with fries, a perfectly roasted chicken and a hearty bean stew. Chicago has a number of standouts from which to choose.
Move over Labor Day, there’s another summer holiday in town – National Sandwich Month. Throughout the month of August these local Chicago restaurants are paying homage to the all American sandwich.
I’m a sucker for a fruit-filled crepe, so at least once a month I attempt to find the latest, greatest and yummiest crepe I can. While a crepe may be known as a French delicacy, many other restaurants in Chicago have mastered the recipes and added their own zing. I am very happy to share with you my favorite places to enjoy my very most favorite breakfast dish.
