Hi, Soo I am late to the party I guess but just realized F&O closed earlier this year.
I am moving back to the chicago area from France and this was our saturday morning ritual to get a few great ,if expensive, items.
It is the only place in town I knew that carried smoked duck magret (duck prosciutto), had a great deli with spanish hams and gravlax and other fun stuff, had fresh duck legs and breast and good old world bread..
Anyway.. Do you guys have a similar one stop shop for hard to find food stuff and fresh deli/meat/special seafood items?
Or am i doomed to have to go to several stores depending on my needs? I mean part of the appeal was going there not knowing what I would buy and always coming home with something special (it is a little bit of a hike from Evanston) and often duck related..
that and the variety duck/ham/cheese products.
I guess eataly has opened now, but it is not what I am looking for (though I am excited and will go).
