Re: “Xoco

It took me so long to finally try it, I can't believe mine is the first review: all I can say is the food lives up to the hype!

Re: “Veggie Bite

The "Italian Beef Melt" was a pretty good vegan unmeat sandwich. The seitan itself was tasty, but maybe a bit dry; overall, though, the over-generous mustardy barbecue sauce made the texture pretty good.

Pleasant, bright room, friendly faces behind the counter, ... and yummy vegetarian options.

I'm not in that part of town too often, but finally made it up to Lake Side Cafe and found it well worth the trip. "Sausage" part of the Chicago Polish was *maybe* a bit dry, but still very good, and kraut and bun part were both excellent -- as were the accompanying salad and the gazpacho I had to start.

Re: “Cafe Nordstrom

I had the "vine ripened vegetable salad" for lunch -- new since last time I was here. It was a big bowl of chopped vegetables, including tomato, cucumber, asparagus, artichoke, more -- with goat cheese and a thin crackery-and-cheese crouton sort of things: very good. $8.25 price maybe a bit high, but same could be said for most places in this part of town. Lemon bar for dessert was also good, but a bit too sweet for my taste.

Re: “How Chicago cab drivers were relieved of liability for dooring crashes

Curious: under the old curbside dropoff rule, where there was a bike lane along the curb, were cabs supposed to pull into the bike line to make the dropoff?

Re: “Hallelujah! Reader editorial staffers ratify a contract

I've corrected the typo (I assume) in the byline. That was ... weird. Thanks for the catch, @The original IAC.

@dthanks, I've fixed the map. Not sure how the point ended up where it was before.

Re: “

I think we finally have the e-mail confirmation/login issue resolved. The link in the e-mail is now to a simplified version of this page at a different URL (same as given to try earlier, but there's now been an additional change on the backend as well).
