Patriot Act
A West Loop Shrine to Comforting Foodstuffs

If Columbus were around today, we’re pretty sure he’d be craving some meat loaf right now.

But since he’s not, you should probably crave some for him.

Here, this’ll help...

Wave a flag around for Real Comfort American Kitchen, an aptly monikered quick-serve joint slinging down-home staples like meat loaf and pumpkin soup and a bunch of other stuff every fiber of your being will appreciate on a crisp autumn day, now open in the West Loop.

Don’t make a big deal out of this. Don’t plan your afternoon around it. Don’t tell your client to meet you at the red-and-blue-striped takeout counter made from a 100-year-old farm table. Just want some pepper-jack-and-bacon mac and cheese. That’s all that’s being asked of you here.

Step inside. Give the chalkboard menu a once-over. Think about what an heirloom-eggplant hoagie would taste like. Think about what an old-fashioned turkey dinner repurposed into a sandwich with stuffing, pan gravy and cranberry goat cheese spread would taste like.

Then escort one of those things past the white brick walls to a small wooden table and figure it all out.

We’ll also accept “eat it.”
