Happy New Year!

The weather outside is frightening, so how about a hearty mole or crispy chimichangas with which to warm up? This place has all the dishes you would expect in a Mexican restaurant, plus some unique offerings that are a bit more unexpected. Please note this is the Morton Grove location– although if some people wanted to head to the Lincoln Park location, I guess we could have two RC’s happening at the same time!

Please let me know if you are interested in joining us by 12 pm on Friday. If we end up with a big group, I can make a reservation.

Sorry for the delay, but I was waiting to make sure we’d be able to make it into the city for R.C. I can’t believe La Creperie hasn’t been chosen yet, so I’ve wanted to pick it for awhile. It’s the oldest creperie in the U.S. and I’m excited to introduce it to Sawyer. If you’d like to come along, please let me know by 3pm tomorrow. Thanks!

Howdy all,

If you’ll be in town on Friday, please join me in at Chicago’s newest (only?) spot for Mississippi Delta-style tamales:

They don’t take reservations, but let’s shoot for 6:30. I’ll try to get there a bit early in case it’s crowded. Just let me know by noon on Friday if you’re in.
