Ricobenes' new location Thu, 02/2/06 1:42 PM (permalink)
I just returned from Ricobenes' new location on Wells Street in the Chicago Loop, and can say that the breaded steak sandwich (which I took back to the office to eat) was every bit as tasty as the one at the 26th Street location that I've enjoyed all these years. The sauce gives just the right flavor to the beef, and the bread holds up nicely. I had the "Regular," which was $4.49; not the $6.49 "Original." There must have been more than half a pound of meat in my sandwich, so I don't think I could have finished if I'd ordered the larger one. Or maybe I could have.

The fries, unfortunately, were mushy. But maybe that's because I took them back to the office rather than eating on site.

Tomorrow I'm off to Mr. Beef - this is definitely an artery-clogging way to end the week!

    Danimal, where have you been? We've posted your picture in Sunset Foods, Dominick's, Jewel, and Target. We've looked for you at all the train stations from Evanston to Highland Park. We haven't seen your car on Edens or the Kennedy. Jamba Juice told us you haven't been in lately. You've eluded us in the loop all week, until today. We've been worried about you. Buddyroadhouse, Luvstoeat, Tsores, and I are getting together to plan the Chicago Italian Beef Tour on Sunday. We'll be in Deerfield at 1:00pm and would be honored to have you as a member of the team. Interested? Drop me an e-mail.

      Sorry, CSD - can't do it this Sunday afternoon - my son's 6th birthday party is taking place. Another time sounds good. I'm eager to try your food.

      Thanks,

      Dan

        No problem Dan. Happy birthday to your son. Hope to see you at the tour. Once a date is set, it will appear in the Misc "Off Topic & Lighter Fare" forum.
