Zombie Preparedness, Chicago Style

In the spirit of continuing the zombie theme, this is something I meant to post a while ago. Inspired by a Gawker story about the invasion of The Ledbury during the London Riots, the staff of the Chicagoist created a list of Chicago Chefs and restaurants most likely to provide protection during a Zombie Apocolypse. The list:

  • Rick Bayless/Xoco
  • Kuma's Corner
  • James Toland/The Black Sheep
  • The Fountainhead
  • The Butcher & Larder
  • The Bedford
  • Tamali Space Charros
  • The Signature Room
  • Wiener Circle

To see the reasoning behind the picks, go and check out the article. It's a fun read!

The Gawker quote, orginally from NakedSushi, that inspired the list?

"The kitchen staff at the Ledbury went beyond their call of duty by rushing up from the kitchen with rolling pins, fry baskets, and other dangerous kitchen tools and scared off the looters. Then they provided well-needed glasses of alcohol including champagne and whisky.  When word came that the looters were coming back a second time, they ushered us into the bathrooms and told us to lock the doors. A few minutes later, they led us into the wine cellar and told us to lock ourselves in there."
