Foreign & Domestic
From married City of Roses transplants, F&D is a pastel-painted one-room canteen with mod-wooden furniture and long bench seating, centered around an open kitchen serving an unpretentious French/ Spanish/ American fusion of "snacks, chomps, and plates", but not <em>C.H.O.M.P.S.</em>, because movies starring Valerie Bertinelli as the girlfriend of a young man who invents a robotic dog are All-American, baby.
Tables at this North Loop mainstay are forever in high demand, and for good reason. Once you sink your teeth into an order of Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls, Pancakes with peach jam, Fried Chicken Biscuits with red-eye cream gravy, or any of their other tempting options, you’ll immediately understand the hype. And considering their logo is a pig, it would be a crime to overlook the Crispy Pork and Grits, a dish that’s all but guaranteed to replace bacon as your new top breakfast meat.
