This week's top dish from Eater Chicago, Chicago's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
LINCOLN PARK—When you're super hungry and don't have a lot of cash, pop into the just-opened Big Stuff, where pizza slices can easily feed a family of four. Just how big are they? Let's just say the pies measure 32 inches.
BUCKTOWN—Ready for some good beer? The award-winning Firestone Walker Brewing Co. will make its Chicago debut at a party at Piece Brewery on Jan. 20. What's more exciting is the head brewmaster's many Chicago ties.
WEST LOOP—Speaking of beer, when Homaro Cantu (Moto) opens his new Fulton Market spot ING in March, it'll have a nanobrewing component, developing on average a new beer every three days. And he'll have a table dedicated to a meal designed around miracle berries.
EVERYWHERE—Chicago's about to experience a major falafel invasion as Lakeview's Falafill plans to open four new spots this year and hopes to add a total of 15 by the end of 2012. Now that's a lot of chickpeas.
