eats: hopleaf

ABC 7 Chicago's Steve "Hungry Hound" Dolinsky teased us tonight with a brief view of a local restaurant called Hopleaf.

"Head up to Andersonville, for the city's most extensive list of Belgian beers at the venerable Hopleaf - a beer lover's nirvana. While you're there, dig into steamed mussels and frites, or an organic Montreal-style brisket sandwich. Spice-rubbed, slow-roasted and briefly smoked, it's sliced thin, piled high on sourdough, and served with addictive fries and a crunchy-tart homemade pickle."

It was pure brisket porn.  Oi vey.  Groove on this menu, then let's meet to eat meat there.

With apologies to Mr. Meaty, of course.
