Windy City Dawgs serves up a hearty menu that revolves around eats inspired by––or chartered directly from––Chicago. Meat cravings find savory satiation with a Chicago-style Vienna beef hot dog ($4) or a slow-cooked seasoned italian beef sandwich ($5.25) cradled by crisp-crusted Gonnella bread. Or, please Chi-hungry taste buds with made-from-scratch pan pizzas ($13+) and Supreme tamales ($1.60), a cylindrical classic since 1950, with a cornmeal shell––much like the Hamburglar's getaway car––filled to the brim with ground beef and spices.
The resident chocolatiers at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory massage creamy loafs of chocolate on sturdy marble slabs daily, building a menu from rich ingredients such as whole cream and real butter. For additional culinary theatrics, cheer on the expert orchard orderlies as they dip Granny Smiths into thick, bubbling caramel from a traditional copper kettle. Caramel apples range from classically simple to loaded with toppings ($3.95–$7.95), accommodating different degrees of decadence more tastefully than a pair of convertible mink pants. Easily transport poppable sweets such as chocolate-dipped strawberries ($11.95/half-pound) or a tongue-melting litany of freshly fangled fudges ($6.95/half-pound). While today's Groupon is not valid toward sugar-free chocolate, which is not made in-store, the confection wizards can also brew batches of treats that provide the taste of chocolate without the frantic dance routines of an uncontrollable sugar rush.
At Ace's Gourmet Paninis, culinary-school grad Chef Van presides over an unlikely marriage between the Italian-born panini and the flavors of Southern comfort fare. He presses only quality ingredients into his sandwiches, including three signature paninis loaded with chicken, beef brisket, or pulled pork slathered in house barbecue sauce. His menu also flaunts a separate breakfast section that highlights paninis and burritos stuffed with more eggs and meats than a vending machine for bodybuilders. His renditions of childhood favorites, such as peanut butter and jelly, even please pintsize palates. Patrons can settle in to surf free WiFi in the eatery or grab a takeout container to feast at home.:
Like snowball fights and hurt feelings, health and happiness are inevitably linked. The team at Yoganics understands this, and they work to promote total well-being through the practice of yoga paired with customizable liquid cleanses that last one to three days and begin with an individual consultation. Clients can fully stretch out achy limbs as they sweat through hot-yoga classes, or run through poses in good company during family yoga sessions. A Girl’s Night Out class and Broga—a strength-based workout for guys—are also part of the lively lineup. To supplement exercises, staff also sell juices, shots, smoothies, and more from organic and locally grown produce.
