Chicago’s most quintessential restaurant isn’t a steakhouse or a laboratory-like kitchen putting out cutting-edge cuisine. It’s a cafeteria. Decide what you want before you get in line at this 70-year-old institution. You’ll pass plates of Jell-O and chicken salad, but this line moves too quickly to decide on the spot. Our advice? Grab one of the oversized corned beef or pastrami sandwiches, a potato pancake on the side and a packet of Tums for dessert.
