Last night, after another volunteering stint at Obama HQ in downtown Chicago, K and I thought we deserved a treat for all of our pro bono… So we stopped into Shikago, a new restaurant by one of our favorite local chefs.
We just sat in the bar area and had a drink and some appetizers (they call them “tastes” here, a fitting homage to the eponymous city’s most popular summer festival). But it’s worth mentioning that the lobster dumplings on the bar menu were insanely good. Like, best thing I’ve had in a restaurant in years good. Good enough that I’m blogging for the first time in 17 years good. That good.
