It's been about a million years since I got back from Chicago. But I have this last post that I didn't get around to...so here it is, the final Chicago info.
A block away from Bongo Room, right near our hotel, was another great breakfast place.
Eleven City Diner
Because the restaurant claimed to be like an old school New York Jewish deli, I was hesitant. Why would I leave New York to go to Chicago to eat in at New York place. But we felt like Bongo Room back to back wasn't a good idea.
Good decision on our part. I started with a Bloody Mary. Always a good way to start a Sunday.
They made it with a bottled mix, which was fine, but the garnish of salami and cheese, along with enormous olives, bumped this cocktail up to very good.
I had a traditional bagel and lox plate. It had all the right parts and so was very good. I've had better bagels, and probably better lox, but it all worked.
The husband had corned beef hash with a fried egg. This really was excellent.
Sometimes you have to go to another city to remember why you love the city you came from.
