Blog Reviews: Week Of Fingers Crossed For Grant Achatz

Chicago's intrepid food bloggers were all over the damn place last week, in alphabetical order by restaurant

• Aside from the obvious kid appeal of chocolate/chocolate/chocolate at Ethel's Chocolate Lounge, the lounges are happy to accommodate themselves to your little miracles [Chicagoist]

• Margarita pitchers flow freely at Fiesta Mexicana, whose cuisine is otherwise humdrum (good quality ingredients, though) [Drive-Thru]

• Our write-up last week focused on Piccolo's bruschetta and panini offerings, but they are just as much a fancy gelateria, and worth a visit on those terms [Drive-Thru]

• Defying pre-conceived notions, the pulled pork sandwich at R.J. Grunt's is actually delicious, with tender meat and spot-on sauce [Chicago Foodies]

• Deli/gourmet grocery/sandwich shop Winston's Market is winning customers with good service and great food (the chef's formerly of Trotter's) [Chicagoist]
