Visiting Chicago for the first time in over 35 years and looking forward to trying things not found in the Bay Area, especially the "Regional Mexican" We sill be staying near Rick Bayless' places and will try at least one, maybe all three. (We only have a week). Also hoping to find some "Regional Mexican" food made by and for Mexicans from that region. In this regard, I've come across mention of several "Berrierias." Any recommendations in regards to quality or location?
Anybody been to the reopened Edna's, now called Ruby's? Worth a trip?
We are Jewish Deli starved here and haven't been to New York, Florida, or L.A. for a while, so considering Manny's or Eleven City. Any thoughts?
Also plan to visit:
Uno or Due, Al's #1 or Portillo's
Purple Pig and/or Publican
North Pond and/or Blackbird and/or Sable
Any feedback appreciated
Oh, and has anyone been to Von Freeman's Tuesday night gig at the New Apartment Lounge?
