Danny, I'm sitting here licking my lips and dreaming about all this food that you are describing! It all tastes so wonderful. I feel like I just left my aunt's house. Is this restaurant anywhere near Chicago, I want to go right now!!

oh wow you're such a tease....!

It all sounds so wonderful I love those Kitschy places. There's a Mexican restaurant in San Francisco that has all it's seasonal decorations up all year long and Mariachis that come to your table to cheese out on you.

The last time I was at Sammy's, it felt like I was at someone's Bar Mitzvah. You remind me I inherited my mom's meat grinder...the same one I used to watch her use to make chopped liver. I used to make it a long time ago...I have good memories of my mom rendering chicken fat and taking the onions and gribbenes( not sure of the spelling) out as it was still cooking on the stove.

I'm sure it must be hard to be thinking of Thanksgiving Dinner after the feast at Sammy's, but tomorrow is another day, as Scarlett liked to say...LOL!


If the restaurant had a "hechsher" I'd be there in a " New York minute"!...Does it?

I love the comparison to the Catskills-- I can relate to that, having gone to a couple of the big resorts a few times. As a teen, I'd sit at the teens' table and the kids would order several entrees and try a bit of each. Fress and and was the order of the day. As for the entertainment-- you either loved it or hated it.

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your family, Danny.

Schmaltz! I thought it was just a slang word. Thanks for the education. :)

P.S. There is no such thing as too much garlic.
