    Again I KNOW other cities have good food too.. New Orleans, and Seattle are in my top ten.. So is Chicago. But don't pretend NYC doesn't have good food.
    I didnt say that!

    NY probably does have more diversity, although Chicago goes pretty deep (just saw a Khazhak/Uzbek restaurant the other day).

    And it has better food in some areas, like most places.

    But we got Rick Bayless...
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    LA is like one gigantic suburb. Some redeeming qualities, but not enough to want to make it a destination for... anything.

    I think your post goes to show how due to the large geographic size of Chicago, along with a host of other factors, there are regional culinary differences within the city itself!

    What we've described in this thread concerning the differences in Chicago pizza, extends very much to Polish food as well, where the South-side Polish food tends more to the Goral tradition. The Goral are the Poles from the far south of Poland in the Tatra mountains, where it borders the Czech Republic. It is mountain cooking, and has some distinct differences from Northern & Central Poland. In fact, the International Association for the Goral culture is still located on the South-side! The Polish National Alliance, representing Polish culture as a whole, is somewhat befittingly located on the North-side.

    And so it goes ...

    Did not know this... what’s the difference between the two, and where is the best restaurants for each?

    I just thought polish restaurants were all about the same...

    In terms of living in the States, one thing found in NYC, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and perhaps a few other older East Coast cities (Philly), but not many places else - including L.A. - is people-friendly fully functional self-contained walkable neighborhoods. Chicago abounds in these neighborhoods, as it is a city of neighborhoods, many with their own culture or ethnicity, and quite a few more of varied ethnicity but having a definitive culture & demographics.

    And importantly for many, social opportunities - of all sorts - are in easy abundance.

    Unless one actually experiences urban neighborhood life of this type - not saying you haven't - it's impossible to adequately describe it. The convenience, vibrancy, cultural & artistic enrichment, and general fun & joy-of-life experiences, can be magical!

    Urban living of this type is not for everyone. But if it's for you, you will never feel more alive!

    Thats false. The beaches in LA are walkable- plenty of restaurants and hot women can be found there, plus the best thing is everyone in LA has a car. I have been to NYC and Chicago and there's nothing special about it- I sure as hell wouldn't be caught walking around the South Side. Being surrounded by blocks and blocks of ornery buildings isn't fun- maybe it is for you, but its not for me. If I want walkable cities, I'd stay in Europe, way way better and safer.

    Why not go to the Polish Highlander's Association (Dom Podhalan), itself? On Archer, just south of 47th? They serve food in the bar, at tables & the bar itself.

    The food will be pretty similar, though with slight differences. There's dill weed often used, and the Kapusta (sauerkraut) soup will be a mostly a clear broth, with large chunks of potatoes and a small piece of pork rib in the broth. Potato pancakes are usually very thin. It's little things like that. You just might find the food a touch more flavorful, than much of the run-of-the-mill Polish - hopefully.

    The bar-food is a side show for the real business - banquet parties! So call first, to ascertain food hours. Also, the neighborhood is no longer Polish for the most part, much less Goral. On the flip-side, you can hit-up Leon's Ribs a couple of blocks down Archer, just north of 47th, for some links to take home!
