Another great breakfast place in Chicago is Lou Mitchell's (sush, jennyema - did I get the name right? It's been awhile). It's down one of the streets near Union Station.

Tons of food, line out the door. Lou, if he's still there, always hands out that taffy candy (dang, I can't remember anything this afternoon) to the ladies.

Well, we are back from Knoxville and had a great time! We enjoy local flavors when we travel and we had one of the best dining experiences ever! May be the best. We were just riding around and stopped at Calhouns on the river, right down from the U of T stadium. We had the best meal, A local brew, light but with a distinct flavor of a good German Pilsner. They had a hickory smoked prime rib that was to die for! Kathy had a side called spinach Marie that was delightful! I had a side of beans that were equally as good. The service was excellent and the view of the river just added to the experience. I must say every person I came into contact with was very nice. If you are in Koxville you must try this place out!

I didn't see this thread until now.

I could have recommended all sorts of places, considering I *live* in Knoxville.

I have the recipe for the Spinach Maria if you want it.

The Copper Kettle is/was at the corner of Copper Kettle (now called Ed Shouse) and Western. When you take the exit off of 640 and use the shortcut over to Middlebrook, that's what used to be Copper Kettle Blvd. It's the restaurant on the corner, between Randy Tyree and Shouse.

Copper Cellar is owned by the same guy, Mike Chase, who owns Calhouns and Chesapeake's.

I, too, am from the Chicago area. There is a Caterpillar plant five miles from my house - will you be visiting it? It is in Montgomery, IL. Anyways, anything Sushi says, he is the "cruise director" and very good at it. I agree, you must get a hot dog (don't you dare mention ketchup or you'll be thrown out of the place), get a good beef, deep dish pizza is a must, my favorite is Lou Malnati's but alot of people like Giordanno's or Uno's. You can never go wrong at any of those places.

I'll have to dig out the cookbook that I have with it. It's the original Calhoun's recipe, in a long-since out-of-print cookbook we used to carry at our bookstore.

Did the Spinach Maria recipe ever get posted? I tried searching, but was not able to find it.

Thanks.

It's somewhere in my vast collection of cookbooks. I haven't posted it yet.
