Chicago-style Italian Beef Sandwich?
Can anyone tell me if there is a place that seels these delicious fully-dipped and overstuffed sandwiches? Or is this a business opportunity waiting to happen? If a street vendor truck would open anywhere in town, it would make a killing.
Crooked Tail Cafe prepares a version that's not bad by my lights...
...but I've never been to that part of the country. The Chicago native who introduced me to these sandwiches (in a DUMBO home kitchen) maintained that the Crooked Tail version lacked some ineffable "Chicago flavor." He also visited Brennan & Carr; not worth the trip, was his verdict.
