    There's a new sign above the door at 2817 W Diversey for Souk Mediterranean Grill. This space is the former home of L. Patron and most recently, Chikis N Grill. I didn't get close enough to notice an ETA.

    Raising Cane has been on my radar for a while. Driving down Harlem with Ellen lunchtime we passed a Raising Cane, right next to Portillo's and down the street from Cluver's. Portillo's was slammed, line of 40-cars, Culver's busy, Raising Cain 2-cars.

    We each ordered a Box, 4-fried chicken tenders, Texas Toast, fries, slaw, Cane sauce, drink, just under $8 each. Fries limp, Texas Toast limp, Cane sauce insipid, tenders not crisp and juicy to the point of watery. I'd guess they were brined or vac-tumbled with some sort of salt/phosphate to enhance water retention. Bland flavor. Slaw was fine, Ellen liked her sweet tea.

    We each ate one tender and called it a day. I had a quesadilla when we got home, Ellen a ham sandwich.

    Raising Cane, One and done. If you are reading this post then, unless you have young children, no other choices for 75-miles or drunk Raising Cane is probably not for you.

    They should bypass the kids meal and go right to the Caniac Combo, 6-tenders, more fries, sauce, drink etc. Caniac, coincidentally, is also the name of a Turkish made handgun, though spelled with a k.

    First time at Morton's 1050 N State (knew the address from memory) was with my dad in the 70's on a Chicago trip from Milwaukee. Just him and me, I thought I was James Bond and Carol Channing's 5th husband all rolled into one. :)

    I thought then, and still do, that Morton's 1050 N State was where god went when she was in the mood for a steakhouse steak. None of the other Morton's, or steakhouses in general, have ever evoked that type of feeling.

    Morton's 1050 N State, count me a Fan!
