All Bacon Restaurant Opens In Chicago – Glorious
Well, technically it's not ALL bacon because there's one sandwich for vegetarians...but damn near everything else has bacon in/on it in this glorious piece of food history that opened in Chicago! Check out the details!
It opened recently, after Chef David Burke finally wrapped his head around the secret of all life… bacon truly does make everything better.
Burke’s Bacon Bar is the latest innovation from the famous chef, and opened this week in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. Though it’s not technically an all-bacon restaurant, it’s as close a thing as this country has ever seen. What’s holding it back? One veggie sandwich. The Smoked Eggplant Meatball Parmesan. Bacon can be added for a buck, but in my mind, why would a vegetarian ever even wander into such a place? Anyway, the restaurant’s menu offers nine total mini-sandwiches (eight of which contain bacon) a few sides, desserts and salads, about half of which contain bacon. Like we said above, this is the closest thing to an all-bacon restaurant we’ve ever seen. The Huffington Post reports that there were plans to open one back in 2009 in Atlanta, but it didn’t pan out.
