New York transplant to Chicago

redsox9687 | Mar 26, 2011 01:49 PM


I grew up in the suburbs of New York, went to school in Philly, then got a job here in Chicago. I'm really enjoying the city so far and Chicago hot dogs and the stuffed and thin-crust pizza are pretty good, but sometimes I get pretty desperate for some good old-fashioned New York-style food, most notably New York-style pizza and especially some good diner food for breakfast. Is there anywhere I get can a few good slices of New York pizza here or a plate of scrambled eggs w/ french fries and a side of bacon or sausage?? I've been scouring the internet for a while now and have turned up absolutely nothing for the pizza, and the only diners I've found seem to be the "trendy" types... I'm just looking for a few slices of NY pizza and a great $6 plate of greasy scrambled eggs w/ fries and sausage... This may sound trivial and I don't mean to "offend anyone" by saying I "prefer NY food over Chicago's" or anything like that (in general I really am enjoying Chicago and its food), but I really am kind of dying here... especially when I get kind of homesick I really start craving going to a really good diner for breakfast or a few slices of pizza for lunch.
