That said, there are a couple things worth noting. This is likely personal taste, but I didn't care for the paragraphs of detail on each restaurant with background. I'm picking up this book because I already know about these restaurants so I would have preferred more recipes over so much background. I might have liked this content better if there were more anecdotes and stories I hadn't read elsewhere, but it all seemed like pretty standard stuff. Also, I thought the recipes in here were delectable, but most weren't signature dishes I would associate with a the restaurants featured. It's not a huge deal, but it is worth noting if you are planning to buy this with a specific recipe in mind.Read more ›

Really expected some great Chicago recipes from this book, but found none. Re-wrapped it for an appropriate gift to a casual friend.Published on July 22, 2013 by Anthony M. Santare
