Last night, Ryan and I went out for dinner. The original plan was to finally get to Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Co. However, when we got there, there was a wait time of an hour and forty minutes. Yea. Not so much. So, we went for a walk.
One of the best things about living and eating in Chicago is that if the wait time at one restaurant is too long, there is always another spot to go eat. While Ryan and I were walking, we passed several places that we could’ve eaten at. We finally decided on Frances’ Deli. It was quite lovely. Turkey dinner with all of the Thanksgiving sides? Yes, please.
Did I know beforehand that this place existed? Nope. But that’s what’s so amazing about Chicago. There are tons of places that you might walk by every single day and they might be really great.
You’ll never know until you try. Or until the wait at the other place is way too long.
