T+L's Deep Dishes of Chicago

Travel + Leisure · Guide to Chicago · created about 6 years ago

It's home to plenty of nitrogen-canister-wielding megachefs, but Chicago also lays claim to one of the country's greatest back-to-basics food communities. These neighborhood favorites are bringing the Old South (and a bit of the Old World) to the heartland. By Francine Maroukian. Adapted from "Chicago's Deep Dish," Travel + Leisure, May 2011. http://www.travelandleisure.com/articles/chicago-restaurants-southern-influence

  • Tinga De Pollo Taco at Big Star in Chicago, IL

    Big Star's tortillas always exhibit the hallmark of freshness: supple enough to roll without cracking yet durable enough to withstand the fillings—such as the tinga de pollo, wood-grilled chicken thigh with house-made chorizo and chipotle salsa.

    Malted Custard French Toast With Citrus Cream, Cherries, Pink Peppercorns at Jam in Chicago, IL

    The custard-soaked brioche from the third-generation family-owned Gonnella Bakery is vacuum sealed and cooked sous vide before it even hits the griddle to be seared; it's then garnished with macerated pineapple and cranberry, citrus cream, and pink peppercorns.

    Fried Chicken Dinner at The Southern in Chicago, IL

    Chef Gary Taylor makes good on his promise of "the dirtiest fried-chicken north of the Mason-Dixon." His buttermilk-brined Amish bird, fired up by just enough hot sauce and Old Bay seasoning (with a subtle undertow of cardamom and clove), results in a crisply crusted chicken that is both airy and earthy.

  • Moules Frites at Vincent in Chicago, IL

    The Amsterdam bistro favorite is served five ways here, including with an Indonesian chili-based broth that's been spiked with tamarind and shrimp paste—a testament to the Netherlands' lingering connection to its former colonies.

  • Gumbo Ya Ya at Big Jones in Chicago, IL

    Just one spoonful of chef Paul Fehribach's chocolate-colored chicken-and-andouille gumbo, made with a traditional dark roux, will have you feeling like you're on the Bayou.

  • Pig Ear at The Bristol in Chicago, IL

    When you see the brined, braised, and crisp-fried pig ear with Vietnamese noodles, coriander, and Illinois soybeans, floating in a meaty pho-style broth tinged with palm sugar, grab it.
