Your talented editor Helen has asked me to write a post letting all you devoted readers know that her computer is down. She did not ask me to write a post about the Chicago food scene, but I feel compelled to mention that on a recent visit to your fair city, I ate some truly wonderful things, including but not limited to:
• Cinnamon buns at Ann Sather
• The French Toast Orgy at Toast
• Transcendent chocolate cake at Green Zebra
• One of the top five meals of my life at Schwa, the quail egg ravioli from which (pictured above) was probably the best single bite I’ve taken all year.
I hope you enjoyed the carpetbagging! Helen should be back soon.
