Well what do you know? It’s already my turn to choose another R.C. Let’s head to Lakeview and try Chicago Diplomat Cafe, which calls itself “the city’s—and perhaps the state’s—only restaurant devoted to the feasting foods of the Republic of Georgia” (seems like a little internet research could potential confirm the middle part of that claim)… FEASTING FOODS!

They don’t serve alcohol and it isn’t BYOB. So that’s sad. And when I called to make an approximate reservation, they asked that I please check the menu and call back tomorrow afternoon “to let them know which cold appetizers and hot entrees we plan to order.” That’s kind of a pain. But it’s got 4 stars on Yelp and the guy on the phone was super nice. So hey, if that’s what we have to put up with to dine Georgian-style, then so be it! Please try to let me know early tomorrow afternoon if you’d like to join the Priests. And if anyone has time for a drink between 5 and 6, I’ll probably hit Flagship Tavern or Schubas. Thanks!
