Shameless filmed in Chicago at the beginning of August, and while the cast was in town, Rossum was spotted visiting Beatrix, a swanky restaurant and coffee shop in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. It’s particularly well-known for its pastries. Now Beatrix has named Rossum’s favorite pastry after her.
Rossum seems utterly thrilled with her new pastry. She Tweeted out a photo of the coffee cake that bears her name and said it was the “best day ever.”
Emmy Rossum follows a gluten-free diet, and Chicago is one of the top 10 gluten-free cities around the world. Rossum’s favorite Beatrix pastry is a gluten-free cream cheese coffee cake. It has raisins, slivered almonds, and a drizzle of frosting. It sells for $2.95 per slice, and it will henceforth be known as “Emmy’s Gluten-Free Cream Cheese Coffee Cake.”
