Thanks to Travel and Leisure and Francine Maroukian for a wonderful write up in the current issue of the magazine, noting the Southern influence in Chicago restaurants. We’re in great company as Francine takes you to six local spots including Big Jones, and wow what wonderful things she has to say about our restaurant. Francine told me she loves gumbo, and what she had this to say after trying mine makes me swoon.
Francine takes us back to our foundation in home-style Southern cooking, but also gives props for our more imaginative dishes, making this concise paragraph one of the most intelligent ever written about Big Jones by a journalist. I really love that she sees the whole picture of what we do, from the down home to the contemporary. Thanks Francine!
