Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: Fried Green Tomatoes

BW- Are you from up north by any chance? My family is Polish/Bohemian & we did tamales for christmas when we lived in Cicero, IL. Or maybe it was new years? Anyhow, we stopped after moving to KY, probably from the lack of fresh tamales. My aunt in Chicago still carries on the tradition. I haven't heard of anyone else doing that though.

Re: “First Bite: Wild & Local

Yep that's the one! I'm sure they could schedule a sampling, unless Cori's has some sort of no compete contract. I know Provence customized that bun for them. But Wild & Local should definitely look into it.

Re: “First Bite: Wild & Local

Provence makes a top split roll that would be perfect for that sandwich!

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: The Right Stuff(ing)

@Today- I thought dressing was gravy too. When I was a kid we moved from Chicago to KY. At the school thanksgiving lunch I asked a classmate if i could have her dressing. She plopped a huge clump of cold stuffing onto my plate haha! My dad is a northerner & prefers bread stuffing. My mom is a southerner & likes cornbread. But it never was sloppy like the chicken & dressing plate at Bailey & Cato.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread: Give Us Your Top 5 Restaurants

I'm with FancyPants- I know there's lots of nice places in town, but I don't ever seem to go. I go to these restaurants a lot. Very consistent food & great customer service, especially from Pepperfire & Lee's.

My top 5, no particular order: pepperfire (tenders royale), Lee's Philly (authentic? Probably not. delicious? yes!) Sax Deli (best GD patty melt I've ever had, love their fries), la hacienda (shrimp fajita quesadilla), Angelo's picnic pizza (XL sausage pizza, great individual tiramisu)

I had the burger of my life at Betty's last week. Classic burger, cooked medium, with good old fashioned american cheese & all the fixins on a toasted bun. Has anyone heard anything else about the bakery/patisserie Cafe Fundamental plans on opening?

Re: “Take a Turn Off Thompson Lane for Dinnertime Fun at Patrick's Bistreaux

Jimmy Carl's hot beef sandwich with a side of macaroni salad... The stuff that dreams are made of.

Re: “The Weekly Open Thread, High Beer Tax Edition

My experience is Chicago based & they're a lot denser. My gramma's dough recipe uses cream cheese. I'm excited to try Yeast's version too, especially if they're serving savory ones!
