Papadopoulos’ food echoes the theme of restored elegance

Bellemore review: Papadopoulos finally gets to cook with 'head, heart and soul'

Chicago Tribune    2/20/2018

If you’ve sampled chef Jimmy Papadopoulos’ cooking in the last four years, chances are that you’ve had his food without ever having had his food. Four years ago, Papadopoulos might have cooked you a prime steak and perhaps lobster bisque at Sam & Harry’s in Schaumburg. Two or three years ago, it would have been chicken paprikash and potato pancakes at Bohemian House, the hit Czech restaurant in River...



Grabbing a cup of coffee shouldn't leaving your dog outside

‘Dog-friendly’ cafe Boris & Horton opens in the East Village


At this coffee shop, you don’t have to choose a cup over your pup. A “dog-friendly” coffee shop where customers are welcome to bring their pooches inside officially opens in the East Village Friday. To be clear, Boris & Horton isn’t positioning itself as the canine-equivalent of a cat café; no dogs will live at the storefront at 195 Avenue A, the coffee joint’s website explains.
