I'm eating here next time I'm in Chicago

I just listened to a podcast that featured an interview with the real Abe Frohman - Doug Sohn, proprietor of Hot Doug's in Chicago. He seemed like a cool guy (really, who goes to culinary school to open up a hot dog shop? Awesome.). What hooked me though is the mention of French fries cooked in duck fat. I have to try that before I die.

Speaking of culinary fowl and the Windy City, shame on the city council for banning oh-so-delicious foie gras.

Make sure you tell me when you're going to Chicago...explicitly for the purpose of going to Hot Doug's, of course. Mmmmmm...duck fat....

dubin - I don't know when the trip will take place, but it WILL happen. Hmmmm...maybe someone will want to spend their birthday there.

jasdye - So, have you been to Hot Doug's? Because living in Chicago, you really have no excuse.
