No, it’s totally true. As of right now and for the past few hours, Bruno’s review of Macello in the Sun-Times is shooting a blank. If it’s any consolation, Vettel reviewed it yesterday, and thought it was pretty good.
On the other hand, Bruno’s revisitation of Streeterville stalwart Bistro 110 comes in loud and clear. When you’ve been in business 20 years, it’s usually because you’ve hit on a workable formula. In Bistro 110’s case, that’s churning out consistent classic French fare like onion soup ($6.95) and steak au poivre ($31.95), and doing it very well. Note that the restaurant avoids pretension by ending its prices in .95, a reliably déclassé demarcation.
