Seems like most places in Chicago, biscuits are humble, flat, dry, stratified little pucks, usually carted in from a bakery. Finding a good biscuit is a rare and special thing. I've written about this place before, but I have to say it again - LT's Grill has some of the best baking powder biscuits (tall, fluffy, white and cakelike) anywhere in town.
Maybe it's just a matter of taste - the noble baking powder-tower style of biscuit isn't for everyone. Some prefer the flat, flaky type, which surely has its own set of attributes.
Yesterday for breakfast, LT served up some monuments to biscuitry: tall, fresh, white, pure, fluffy and delicious. A little strawberry jam and some hot Intelligencia coffee was all I really needed (though I ate much more).
LT's is a great place. Such a nice guy. I much prefer his breakfast over the dinner offerings, but the I am no barbeque connoisseur.
