My husband and I recently "discovered" Paprikash (actually we saw it featured on "Check Please"). I was overjoyed to discover that they have on the menu a favorite dish from the old Epicurean - a Hungarian restuarant that used to be on South Wabash about 35 years ago. We used to call this dish "Sheckly Goulash" - pork cubes, paprika and sauerkraut all stewed together - delicious! Actually it's spelled very differently and pronounced something like "Zheck-hai." The place is small, the decor is nice - nothing too fancy, but a "white-tablecloth" place nonetheless. The service is good and the food is great. Try the Porkholt - like a goulash, but no sour cream. They give you a plate of their "garlic bread" - light and fluffy, like a lttle garlic puri. A Hungarian concoction called "St. Huberetus" is a great way to end the meal - sort of a Hungarian Drambuie.
