Fried Green Tomatoes and Barack Obama

excerpt from Chicago Bites #126

Dixie Kitchen and Bait Shop
By Bridget on January 12, 2009

"...Barack Obama is a Chicago foodie, so when Tammy and I heard that the president-elect likes the southern fare at Dixie Kitchen and Bait Shop in Hyde Park we headed over there to check it out ourselves. My mouth has been watering ever since! I’m craving the fried green tomatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, catfish, greens, and sweet potato pie at this very moment. Part of a small Illinois restaurant chain, Dixie Kitchen does it right -- tasty food and spectacular service all for a good value...."

NOTE: "...Want to hear Obama’s take on Dixie Kitchen? A lost pilot episode of the show
Check it out! taped in 2001 features the then state senator’s review. It aired at 8 p.m. on Friday, January 16, on WTTW." (excerpted from Chicago Bites)
