They say that when your body craves certain foods, it might be trying to tell you something. A craving could be a window into your nutritional needs, so to speak. That said, this girl must need more iron in her life stat because I managed to devour a lox brunch for exactly three days in a row while visiting Chicago last weekend. Omega-3 fatty acids were all up in my business.
I blame the Eleven City Diner. Our foursome visited this spot in South Loop on a tip from a doorman, and were immediately impressed with the charming Jewish deli. At right is a shot of my carefully plated Lox & Latke. A potato latke, Nova lox, green onions, capers and a dollop of sour cream smiled sweetly at me. Yes, I will have this dance.
