First, thanks to Emily for the tip on the NY Times article. I managed to snag a copy of yesterday's paper from the newstand at the "el." See thread below.
Second, I'm quite ignorant of the suburbs...having lived and ventured in the City since moving from small-town Wisconsin. I now find myself at a client's offices on Hwy 176 Libertyville/Lake Forest near Lamb's farm, the tollway, etc.
I found Little Nicky's (Roast Beef and Mashed $4.50 w/huge salad for $2 extra). Can anyone provide some information on other chowhound finds in the area? Your help is appreciated.
