Re: “La Madia

I know the place just opened, but the service is still uneven at best. The food is good, we especially liked the artichoke. There has been a lot of thought that went into the wine selection by the glass. The place is pricey, but expected for the neighborhood.

Re: “Eleven City Diner

The best diner. Everything is as it should be food wise; crisp bacon, solid sandwiches, perfect pancakes. The service could be better, but it is a diner.

Re: “Patty Burger

Pretty decent you-get-what-you-expect kinda place. Burgers are fresh and decor is new and shiny. Missed the rush so the service wasn't bad. Maybe they were fresh, but I thought the fries were superior. My only gripe is the nickle and diming on the extras like grilled onions.

Re: “Feed

Nice BYO spot that recalls some soul food classics. Desserts are homey and delicious. Can get loud, and seating feels tight, but keeps people moving through.

Re: “Mayor Daley Shoots His Own Messenger

Calling Bill Abolt "respected" is a little bit of a stretch. How about just plain ole' Budget Director Bill Abolt. He was at Budget not Enviroland.

Re: “A Perk That Needs to Die

What about the cars and CPD? Second City Cop went on a long rant about it.
