We live in Michigan City, Indiana and make periodic "food runs" to Chicago.
Some of our typical stops are:
D'amato's Bakery on Grand for Pizza(so we won't starve)
Casa Nostra Bakery on Belmont in Elmwood Park for the BEST Italian bread in the City.
Caputo's Farm Market on Harlem in Elmwood Park for everything else good.
Then, back downtown to Sam's Liquors to search the "discontinued" bins for wine bargains.
Finally, we seek out a BYOB restaurant for an early dinner or late lunch.
DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A COMPREHENSIVE LISTING OF BYOBs in the Chicago area?
If not, can you recommend some of your favorite BYOB,s?
