Re: “Jewish comfort food is hiding in plain sight at Frances' Deli

One of the waitresses at the Arlington location told me that the cheese blintzes were her mother's recipe...cheese with fresh blueberries! Let me tell you, I almost plotzed! I miss the steam table (entree with 3 sides...such a deal!), but I'm so glad that they kept the feel, along with the homemade sausage, the lox and onions omelette, and the thick challah French toast. The chocolate malts are amazing, and the addition of the list of craft sodas was a big plus (Goose
Island makes a great root beer!). Frances has become a family tradition of ours since our daughter was little...breakfast with a Cubs game chaser. That's what I'm talkin' about!
