Honey Butter Fried Chicken owners' Best Day Ever in Chicago
Driving the news: Co-owners Christine Cikowski and Josh Kulp threw special events and announced they're opening a branch in Glencoe this fall.
- Now that much of the hoopla has died down, we checked in with these local culinary fixtures to see what they do when they're away from their restaurant.
👟 Morning activity: Hiking the North Branch Trail.
🥞 Lunch: Lula Cafe, baked French feta with a side of pancakes for the table.
🍝 Dinner: Earliest possible reservation at Monteverde, because I prefer to be home and in bed by 9pm these days, but I would order every pasta on the menu and a huge salad.
🥧 Evening activity: A piece of pie from Bang Bang, in my backyard garden, watching the sun go down behind the trees with my dog.
🍳 Breakfast: Two options: Lula Cafe with my family — I always order from the specials. Everything is always amazing.
- Or Yellow Rose Cafe for secret meetings with Hot Doug. I like the house omelette with avocado, bacon, spinach, and jack. Homemade hot sauce for the win!
- On weekday mornings, kayaking with my kid at the Skokie Lagoons.
🌮 Lunch: El Asadero on Montrose, a family favorite for nearly 30 years.
- I always get a steak taco with cilantro and onion and I like to add a slice of avocado. Their salsa verde is fantastic. Probably my favorite restaurant.
⚾️ Afternoon activity: Cubs game!
