Family Recipes Are on the Menu: Chefs Serving Dishes Steeped in Tradition
Thanksgiving is all about celebrating family and food. But at some restaurants, every day feels like Thanksgiving as chefs get to honor their own heritage by bringing flavors from home to your plate. Here are nine restaurants where family recipes are on the menu.
Bub City, Chicago, Illinois
Growing up in Buffalo, New York, chef and Bub City partner Christian Eckmann spent a good deal of time in his grandfather and great uncle’s butcher shop and grocery store, Kurzanski’s, which was started by his great-grandfather in the 1920s. Eckmann learned the craft and helped make Easter Polish sausages, which his grandfather would joyfully distribute to customers and neighborhood friends during the holiday. Today, Eckmann carries the torch in the Windy City, making Texas hot links, Basque-style Txistorra, and breakfast sausages for Bub City’s hangover brunch. Make a reservation at Bub City.
