Some friends recently told me about a "secret restaurant" in LA. When you drive by it (of course you'd never walk by it in LA), it is boarded up and appears abandoned. But supposedly inside there's an amazing chef who lets you in only with a recommendation and the secret password. Or so they say - I guess this could just be a foodie urban legend.
Anyone ever heard of secret restaurants in Chicago? My guess is our town is not pretentious enough (one reason I love it), but you never know.
