Too funny. We thought about eating at Ostra but none of the patrons looked particularly excited about their food and if I don't see people passing plates around at $30/each I'm outta there.

putting that on my pizza tour stop . lemme ask you soviet, seeing that ray's has veal parm sandwiches, what do you consider a real chicken parm sandwhich:
A. using chicken breast
B. using chicken breast pounded into a filet
C. using a filet (processed)

also glad to see they're not calling it a ''Philly Cheesesteak'' or even a cheesesteak sandwich .

Spanky's Burger Joint. I first heard about this future burger place here on CD. I think it must have been about last April or May. They had a website up even then with a count down ticking toward an opening day that came and went last July. Well, they finally opened around January 1st I think. Went there today for lunch. Great cheese burger and fries. Kind of pricey for a lunchtime burger meal. About $10. No lunch specials. Great burger though. I still can't figure out what took them so long to open this place unless it was a delay in securing funding. As far as the facility. It's just a rather small place in a strip center. A good hole in the wall burger place. I wish them luck and I'm picky about my burgers.

Having eaten unholy amounts of chicken parms during my college days in Baltimore, the answer is A, no question about it.

LOL well ok, mine was C . then maybe B but never A .
something ''unholy'' about biting into a slab of meat on a kieser unless it once went ''moo'' .

Hmmmm.....well, I'm pretty sure my place gave chicken breasts. Unless I am waaaaay off base somehow. It's been several years since college....perhaps my memory's playing tricks on me!

Went to Lulu's and had the CFS. I loved the steak and my roll. I was disappointed in the sides and service.

Thai Restaurant at Callaghan and Babcock for lunch and ChaCha's on Babcock for dinner. Our waiter at ChaCha's was stoned but he got better as he sobered up or maybe we quit noticing as we drank more margaritas.... If you get him, you'll know who I'm talking about.
