North America: down-home comfort cooking @ Feed

  • Jan 11, 2014 · 1:00 PM

Comfort food is our second North American outing.

From Chicago Reader:

Description: Down-home comfort cooking from Donna Knezek, formerly of Leo's and Bite. Cash only.

Dining Details: Feed is the project of Donna Knezek, one of the original owners of Leo’s Lunchroom and a founder of Bite. It’s a shack with a chalkboard menu that begins 1/4 chicken, 1/2 chicken, whole chicken. Needless to say, get the chicken: salty and succulent, it has the golden crackle of skin that makes rotisserie bird so viscerally satisfying. Knezek has been cooking in Chicago for around two decades, but at Feed she originally pared down her menu to the point of parody: chicken, burger, Caesar salad, a daily special, and a dozen sides. They include fried okra, a homey, comforting corn pudding, and rich and cheesy baked mac ’n’ cheese. Now she’s relented some, adding a pulled pork and a barbecued chicken sandwich to the offerings; brunch items might include pulled pork hash and green tomato eggs Benedict. For dessert there’s pie and fluffy, creamy banana pudding served in a Styrofoam cup, with Nilla Wafers throughout. Feed is BYOB but the sweet tea’s superb, and there’s a corner store with a decent beer selection a few blocks to the east. As with any good meal, the food makes anything else you’d wanted before—steak, say—suddenly superfluous. Enter the serene, nicely decorated brick patio from California.
