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


Almost everything at David Burke's Primehouse is quite tasty and enjoyable, except, unfortunately, the burger, which was served on an uninspired bun with crappy fries
[Chicago Burger Project]

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]
