IL - Chicago area?

I know all the great places. Well known and hidden. If you are going to Chi-town just ask!

Sush, my parents were just there a few weeks ago - the photos from the area were just beautiful! Lucky you being able to live there!!!

Since I'm moving, I can't vacation for quite some time, so how about you send me a nice big chicago pizza?

Sushi is right. I spent my youth living near and in Chicago. Great eating town (and great music town, and museum town, etc., etc.)

I, too, am from Chi-Town. I love it here. Hands down, the best place to live in the world. Traffic and smog aside, the grass is always green here LOL.

I got the South side covered up to the near north district just north of The Loop. Wifey works at the Bloomingdales Building on Michigan Ave. She goes somewhere new for lunch or dinner just about every day. Lucky her! However, if you are in search of a home cooked meal, my kitchen is always open.

Is Mr. Bennie's still in the Tinley Park area? We ate there when we went to a Farm Aid concert, and I had one of the top 5 steaks I've had in my life. They also served us a marinated grilled portobello that was fantastic. I've never been able to duplicate the recipe.
And of course, the service was impeccable. Mr. Bennie is Italian...what more can I say?

We had a Chicago Pizza overnighted to us when I worked at the Newspaper in El Paso....it was awesome! (I think it was Uno's)

Seems now you can Order from Lou Malnati's online.....
My Sister would love me forever if I surprised her with a couple!
