A Tip and A Special Request from a Visting Hound

John Galt | Apr 27, 2010 06:59 PM

I was in Chicago last month and will be returning this weekend for a short visit.

Last month, in very limited time I squeezed in trips to The Publican, Avec, and XOCO. While I had many tast y treats, the clear standout was the Chocoflan at XOCO. I am not someone who typically prefers desserts, but this was truly extraordinary. That is my tip.

In exchange for my tip, I am soliciting input for the one morsel of food I absolutely must have during my brief stay this weekend. I have only a few spare hours this Saturday afternoon. I have no boundaries with respect to atmosphere, cuisine, etc. All dives, cuisines, etc, welcome.

Thanks in advance for your help.
