So we had dinner last night at Bistro Campagne over near Montrose Park. They used gordal olives in their martinis. Does anyone know where I can find them? They were DELICIOUS and literally the size of eggs. Totally worth the mild hangover this AM.
These are a Spanish variety but I've only seen them in jars (and I can't remember if it was in Chicago). You may have to look online for a place that ships. I was on the hunt for Castelvetrano olives in Chicago and ended up paying through the nose from a supplier in NYC until I found some cheap in an Italian deli in Arlington Heights.
