In 2006, on a trip to Chicago, I finally got to the Lithuanian restaurant I'd heard about on line-Healthy Food. Now I'd never found that many to begin with so it isn't like I had a choice of a lot...even in Chicago. We got off the infamous Dan Ryan expressway, and entered Chicago via the SouthSide. Lots of street names that brought back musical memories but still a bleak area. DH said are you sure this is the right way? and I said "Just drive." We found the restaurant, a parking space right out front and proceeded to enjoy the Breakfast of Champions which is NOT Wheaties in a Lithuanian restaurant.
We met with Gina the owner, who was happy to talk to us, tell us her history, and share opera stories with dh. We wondered how long "Healthy Food" would hang on in its Bridgeport location, or just hang on period.
