I went to TASTE OF CHICAGO and found a jewell of a restaurant on the South Side. I was sold on the Sweet Potato Cheese Cake and Egg Rolls made with collard greens at "Taste". But the restaurant had so many suprises. I peeked in on an outstanding catered affair there. I wanted outside seating and that special menu. We are planning another trip to Chicago to try more of the menu and to get those egg rolls!

We went today for the first time. The sevice was great if casual (this is not a place for the formal stuffed shirt crowd) and the food was magnificient. I had the gumbo (loaded with seafood, chicken and sausage) ribs, macaroni & cheese, fruit, peach cobbler and the chocolate cake. All of it was fabulous. My sons went to town on the Belgian waffles, bacon, fruit and the cake. My husband somehow managed to have both breakfast & lunch (only he could put away waffles and ribs at the same sitting) followed by dessert and for the 4 of us we spent less than $50 and came away feeling that we'd underpaid.

I went to the Sunday Brunch at C'est Si Bon. The food is the BEST!!! I found a unique blend of French, Creole, and African flavors. Every dish was wonderfully prepared. The desserts were, well to die for. The staff is very personable. The chef came out and carved the roast. The owner, Ms. Renee, came by our table and made our group feel very special. The location of the restaurant and interior decorations added to my experience. I love that Chicago neighborhood, Hyde Park. I have a very nice feel when I eat there. I always walk, and visit local shops after eating. We only visit Chicago once or twice a year. But we always stop here each visit. Sweet potato cheesecake is not on the Sunday Brunch but it is a must. Also try the collard green eggroll.

When I showed up for breakfast one Thursday morning, it was clear that they don't get a lot of morning traffic. I went to the wrong door and a woman waved me around to the entrance, but had disappeared by the time I got there. I stood in the deserted dining room for several minutes and had to call out before someone went and got her. After that, the service was okay. The woman served as both the cook and my waitress. She made me the best fried chicken and waffles I've ever had. It was the best fried chicken I've had in a long time, period. It was crispy, juicy, and flavorful without being too spicy. I had eaten breakfast out twice that week, but nothing compared to C'est Si Bon. I would definitely go back, but the service needs improvement. If the service is off when it's empty, I'd hate to see what happens when it's busy.
