Morsels from Chicago Magazine

Chicago Magazine has long been one of the best resources for reviews and news about the restaurant scene in the City by the Lake. They now have a new online feature called "Morsels", written by Penny Pollack & Jeff Ruby that serves as a sort of "Kup's Column" of the Chicago restaurant community.

If you'd like to skip having to bookmark the site, you can have the column spammed - er, delivered to you by e-mail by sending a message to chimagmorsels-sub@email.trb.com.

It also makes for a great excuse to post a picture of my hometown.

The new Chicago Magazine Best Restaurants issue hits stands early next week. Best Chef, Best Restaurant, and Dish of the Year awards among others are on the line. Will Charlie Trotter challenge Rick Tromonto to an iron chef-style cook-off using only froths? Will Rick Bayless edge past Grant Achatz's chocolate sea bass (no, really) with cuitlacoche quesadillas? Will Alpana Singh take back the sommelier of the year award?

Chicago Magazine does not put the results online, so you'll just have to find a website that covers food that happens to have writers in Chicago who can get ahold of an issue. I think I can suggest one.

Will Barrett and his wife be testing the winning restaurants personally (purely in the interest of good journalism, of course)? Stay tuned for another exciting episode...
