The other day I had to run an errand at lunch and noticed that there were a few interesting food trucks parked outside our office on Columbus. I decided to give The Fat Shallot a chance and OMG IT WAS SOOO GOOD. I got the grilled cheese, which was made with sharp cheddar, caramelized onion and sauteed spinach and was served on sourdough bread. And then I got rosemary fries on the side. Wow. Amazing grilled cheese sandwich. And big. Megan had to help me finish the fries!
I’ve since talked to a few of my coworkers who have gotten sandwiches and other food from The Fat Shallot and everyone is raving. Follow them here to find out when they’ll be in your neighborhood!! They also do catering, and I would LOVE IT if they opened a storefront in Logan Square!

Earlier in the football season we watched some games at The Scout in the South Loop. I ordered a salad for lunch, but several people at our table got the foot-long grilled cheese. There are 3 different varieties: one with bacon, one with Canadian bacon and a side of pickles, and one with bacon and jalepenos. All came with tomato basil soup. It was crazy how big these sandwiches were! No one could finish, of course, so our table just ended up free-for-alling on them. I had a few bites of the sandwich with the bacon and jalepeno and it was really good. Especially dipped in the soup. That’s the grilled cheese everyone agreed was the best, with bacon and jalapeno. It’s called The Wolff. Look for it on the menu.
As a bonus, here’s a glowing photo of Adam:
Oh and behind him Jarrett Payton (son of Walter) was recording an ESPN Radio show.
One more thing. Who is this idiot who not only bought a Vikings Favre jersey, but is still wearing it out in public!??!
