    Other than the deep-dish, the Chicago hot dog, the mother-in-law, and the Jim Shoe, what are other staples tied solely to this city?

    I've only seen it in Chicago and mainly on the south side. Where else have you seen it?

    Kansas City. Specifically, it's called an "Italian Steak Sandwich", but it's the same as the item we call a Breaded Steak Sandwich.

    I've not seen the breaded steak sandwiches anywhere except Ricobene's. They may be in other places on the south side. Never have I seen them anywhere else I've lived around the city or suburbs, north or west.

    Chicken Vesuvio - I certainly can't get it here in the San Francisco Bay area and am really missing it. I need that deep dose of garlic!!

    Garlic is just down the street from you at "The Stinking Rose." You will get your fill and then some there.
