Chicago Eats: Grahamwich

I finally got a chance to try famed Graham Elliot's sandwich place, Grahamwich. It did not disappoint. I loved the decor and the food was delicious. Great place to grab lunch and it's really close to my office (ut-oh!). It's about 3 blocks off the Mag Mile in the River North area.

I had the pork belly sandwich. So good! I've got a major BBQ pork obsession lately, it's like I must try them at every place I go to! Anyway, this one had a perfect coleslaw on it and thin pickle slices. Yum. I also tried a Root Beer -- all of their sodas are homemade. My friend had the roast beef sandwich with spinach and shoestring fries, not sure what else, but she did really like it! And last but not least, my friend ordered the Truffle Popcorn. This was some good popcorn! It was seasoned to perfection and had Parmesan sprinkled on it. They also have homemade chips seasoned this same way, those will be a must for next time!

Lunch is a little on the expensive side $8 for a sandwich and the sodas and chips are extra. But hey, it's good stuff!

So all in all, we had a great experience. If you're visiting town, this would be a great place to take a break from shopping and you definitely won't find many tourists here! And who knew, behind bustling State street there is a quiet little landscaped courtyard where we ate our lunch.

One other thing -- the menu changes seasonally, so you never know what new creations they'll come up with. Always something different!

  1. Looks like a fun place - we need to try it next time I am in town! Your BBQ pork obsession continues...

  2. It is good to be back at last catching up with your blogging activities. What a great place to buy lunch, which I would then take out to sit in that pretty stone seat you found :)
