Does anyone know where in Chicago I can get lardons to cook myself? Grocery stores seem to have only sliced bacon, but even thick-sliced bacon does not yield the type of chunks that you get, say, in the Salade Lyonnaise at Le Bouchon.
Go to Gephert's Meat Market, Paulina Meat Market or Treasure Island for slab bacon and cut it to the size you want.
I would try calling one or more of the butchers recommended in the following discussion topics:http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/561594http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/380774http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/477536
