At any given point, I have a list of restaurants I plan on trying in the near future. This is a list of restaurants on my short list (generally defined as restaurants I am embarrassed to admit I haven’t visited yet.)
- Girl and the Goat
- Great Lake
- Next Restaurant/Alinea (this is more of a fantasy dinner)
- The Publican
- Hot Doug’s
- Birrieria Zaragoza
In conclusion, if anyone wants to go to any of these places with me some time during fall quarter, drop me a line.
The University of Chicago is bringing Clarke’s restaurant, a 24-hour Chicago-area diner, to 53rd Street in Hyde Park…
…Scheduled to open later this year, Clarke’s will offer a wide variety of menu choices, including specialty salads, stir-fry dishes, sandwiches and a host of additional breakfast, lunch and dinner items. The restaurant addresses a longstanding interest among students and other community members for more late-night options.
All I have to say about this is… YES!
This definitely beats trying to stay up until 5:30AM to eat at Valois. Plus, sweet potato fries are delicious at all times of day, but especially between the hours of 1 and 4 AM.
More updates to come after I escape my 6th week black hole of midterms (workload reached critical mass yesterday). Check Wednesday afternoon for a new post.
